Joyous

I love to view from mountain brow
The quiet lake that sleeps below;
A lovely sight for Artist’s eye,
But fairer still when memory
Recalls again the autumn gale,
The campfire’s light, the joyous sail,
And all the gladsome scenes that make
A happy home beside the lake.

— William Martin Beauchamp (1830-1925) quoted in The John D. Barrow Art Gallery at Skaneateles, New York (1908) by E. Reuel Smith
