My Native Land(1897)
"My Native Land" is the 101st song in Ives's song collection 114 Songs.
My Native Land
My native land now meets my eye,
The old oaks raise their boughs on high,
Violets greeting seem,
Ah! 'tis a dream.
And when in distant lands I roam,
My heart will wander to my home;
While these visions and fancies teem,
Still let me dream.
