Owning a debt we never can repay,
Have placed a tablet in a sacred shrine;
Now to that tribute I would add a line.
Countryside, and country scenes revive again.
Linnet and thrush: the waving fields of grain.
And those who lived and worked in sun and rain
Revived by you still go their rural way
Enriching us who read your poems today.
