To the Water-Crowfoot
By William Barnes (1801–1886)
 
O SMALL-FEÄC’D flow’r that now dost bloom,
To stud wi’ white the shallow Frome,
An’ leäve the clote 1 to spread his flow’r
On darksome pools o’ stwoneless Stour,
When sof’ly-rizèn airs do cool        5
The water in the sheenèn pool,
Thy beds o’ snow white buds do gleam
So feäir upon the sky-blue stream,
As whitest clouds, a-hangèn high
Avore the blueness of the sky.        10
 
Note 1. The yellow water-lily. [back]
