C.D. Warner, et al., comp.  The Library of the World’s Best Literature.
An Anthology in Thirty Volumes.  1917.
 
From ‘The Dragon-Fly’
By Théophile Gautier (1811–1872)
 
UPON the heather sprinkled
      With morning dew;
Upon the wild-rose bush;
Upon the shady trees;
      Upon the hedges        5
Growing along the path;
 
Upon the modest and dainty
        Daisy,
That droops its dreamy brow;
Upon the rye, like a green billow        10
        Unrolled
By the winged caprice of the wind,
The dragon-fly gently rocks.
