1. "Wilt thou go with me, sweet maid,Say, maiden, wilt thou go with meThrough the valley-depths of shade,Of night and dark obscurity;Where the path has lost its way,Where the sun forgets the day,Where there's nor life nor light to see,Sweet maiden, wilt thou go with me!Where stones will turn to flooding streams,Where plains will rise like ocean waves,Where life will fade like visioned dreamsAnd mountains darken into caves,Say, maiden, wilt thou go with meThrough this sad non-identity,Where parents live and are forgot,And sisters live and know us not!Say, maiden; wilt thou go with meIn this strange death of life to be,To live in death and be the same,Without this life or home or name,At once to be and not to be -That was and is not -yet to seeThings pass like shadows, and the skyAbove, below, around us lie?"
Author: John Clare
2. "THE ROBINO Robin, sing! for the secret of eternity is in song.I wish I were as you, free from prisons and chains.I wish I were as you; a soul flying over the valleys,Sipping the light as wine is sipped from ethereal cups.I wish I were asyou, innocent, contented and happyIgnoring the future and forgetting the past.I wish I were as you in beauty, grace and eleganceWith the wind spreading my wings for adornment by the dew.I wish I were as you in beauty, a thought floating above the landPouring out my songs between the forest and the sky.O Robin, sing! and disperse my anxiety.I listen to the voice within your voicethat whispers in my inner ear;"
Author: Kahlil Gibran

4. "The moon from any window is one partwhoever's looking. The part I can't seeis everything my sister keeps to herself. One part my dead brother's sleepless brow, the other part the time I waste, the timeI won't have. But which is the lionkilled for the sake of the honey inside him, and which the wine, strandedin a valley, unredeemed? And don't forget the curtains. Don't forget the windin the trees, or my mother's voice saying thingsthat will take my whole life to come true. One part earnest child grown tallin his mother's doorway, and one a last lookover the shoulder before leaving. And never forget it answers to no address, but calls wave after waveto a path or thirst. Never forgetthe candle climbing downwithout glancing back. And what about the heartcounting alone, out loud, in that gamein which the many hide from the one? Never forget the crycompletely hollowed of the dying onewho cried it. Only in such pure outpouringis there room for all this night."
Author: Li Young Lee
5. "There is in this valley a beating heart. It is always and ever there. And when I am gone, it will beat for you and when you are gone, it will beat for your children and theirs, forever. Forever. Until there is no water, no air, no green in the spring or gold in the autumn, no stars in the sky or wind from the north. And when you cannot speak, it will speak for you. When you cannot see, it will be your eyes. When you cannot remember, it will be your memory. It will never forget you. And when you cannot be faithful, it will save a place for your return. This is a gift to you. It cannot be taken away. It is yours forever. It is the narrative of this world, and the scrapbook of your own small life, and, when you are gone into ash and darkness and the grave, it will tell your story."
Author: Robert Goolrick
6. "The apples of the valley holdthe seeds of happinessThe ground is rich from tender careRepay, do not forget, no, noDance in the dark of nightSing to the morning light"
Author: Robert Plant
