Augustin S. Macdonald, comp.  A Collection of Verse by California Poets.  1914.
By Charles Warren Stoddard
A MAID is seated by a brook,
  The sweetest of sweet creatures;
I pass that way with my good book,
But cannot read, nor cease to look
  Upon her winsome features.        5
Amongst the blushes on her cheek
  Her small white hand reposes,
I am a shepherd, for I seek
That willful lamb, with fleece so sleek,
  Feeding among the roses.        10
