Review of "Austerity" by Janet Loxley Lewis

"Austerity" by Janet Loxley Lewis (1899 - 1998) was offered by's Poem-A-Day on November 23, 2013.  A link to the poem may be found here:

The speaker, presumably the poet, sings of how she enjoys a life of solitude and privacy.  Mrs. Lewis uses "cold hills" as a metaphor for isolation, as opposed to the relative bustle of "life in the turfy meadow" all buzzing with bees.  The buzz of bees may be a metaphor for the sounds of a busy city.
