Here you will find the Poem The Mountain Road of poet Daniel Decatur Emmett
COMING down the mountain road Light of heart and all alone, I caught from every rill that flowed A rapture of its own. Heart and mind sang on together, Rhymes began to meet and run In the windy mountain weather And the winter sun. Clad in freshest light and sweet Far and far the city lay With her suburbs at her feet Round the laughing bay. Like an eagle lifted high Half the radiant world I scanned, Till the deep unclouded sky Circled sea and land. No more was thought a weary load, Older comforts stirred within, Coming down the mountain road The earth and I were kin.
