Today we share a short poem written by Elizabeth Barrett Browning (March 6, 1806 – June 29, 1861), a prominent poet from the Victorian era:
OUT IN THE FIELDS WITH GOD
The little cares that fretted me,
I lost them yesterday
Among the fields above the sea,
Among the winds at play;
Among the lowing of the herds,
The rustling of the trees,
Among the singing of the birds,
The humming of the bees.
The foolish fears of what may happen
I cast them all away
Among the clover-scented grass,
Among the new-mown hay;
Among the husking of the corn
Where drowsy poppies nod,
Where ill thoughts die and good are born,
Out in the fields with God.
