9781331587446: The Wistful Years (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Wistful Years

Desirous of running away again. Unlike the stream, however, whose parental discipline was of another character, he was under the necessity, in their excursions, of returning the selfsame day to the willows where he kept his boat, envying the waters their apparent freedom, and yearning for the time when he, as well, should be able to go on and on, out and away from that familiar corner of the earth, through pastures new and past other villages to the endless sea. Not that his mind as yet was overmuch occupied by these rov ing fancies - there were too many flowers and fishes to be carried home first in the bottom of his canoe, and too many dawns and sunsets and rising moons to stare and wonder at, there at home. With all his imaginings of that larger, more enchanting world beyond his ken, in which boys became heroes, and which lay he fancied in the west, where at evening he could see its fires lighting the hori zon, far and wide, with their golden promises, life was still pleasant on the calm Meander.
