You in the Hammock

Hammock

“You in the hammock; and I, near by,

Was trying to read, and to swing you, too;

And the green of the sward was so kind to the eye,

And the shade of the maples so cool and blue

That I often looked from the book to you”

— From “In the Afternoon” by James Whitcomb Riley, illustration by Will Vawter
