Caricamento in corso...

I Like to See It Lap the Miles,

I like to see it lap the miles,
And lick the valleys up,
And stop to feed itself at tanks;
And then, prodigious, step
 
Around a pile of mountains,
And, supercilious, peer
In shanties by the sides of roads;
And then a quarry pare
 
To fit its sides, and crawl between,
Complaining all the while
In horrid, hooting stanza;
Then chase itself down hill
 
And neigh like Boanerges;
Then, punctual as a star,
Stop—docile and omnipotent—
At its own stable door.
