All On A Golden Summer Day

Arthur Macy 1842 – 1904



All on a golden summer day,
As through the leaves a single ray
Of yellow sunshine finds its way
So bright, so bright;
The wakened birds that blithely sing
Seem welcoming another spring;
While all the woods are murmuring
So light, so light.

All on a golden summer day,
When to my heart a single ray
Of tender kindness finds its way,
So bright, so bright;
Then comes sweet hope and bravely dares
To break the chain that sorrow wears -
And all my burdens, all my cares
Are light, so light!

His name alone is evidence of this, for it is safe to say that a Macy, wherever found in the United States, is descended from that sturdy old Quaker who was one of those who bought Nantucket from the Indians, paid them fairly for it, treated them with justice, and lived on friendly terms with them. Early in the war Macy enlisted in Company B, 24th Michigan Volunteer Infantry. He was twice wounded on the first day at Gettysburg, and managed to crawl into the town and get as far as the steps of the Court House, which was fast filling with wounded from both sides. He was on duty later at the Naval Academy Hospital in Annapolis.Few of those who sought Arthur Macy for business information ever suspected that they were talking to a poet and man of letters. more…
