To a New England Girl
By Edward Townsend Booth
AH, you have taken my hot delight
In France and stripped it of its wings;
Broken the swift Icarian flight
Of untoward imaginings
That sought a sun hardly my own.        5
And you have winged and brought me down
Through sudden ecstasy to rest
Upon your white New England breast,
Where love is fragrantly austere
As those deep-bosomed hillsides are        10
That slope down to Franconia,
Full-blossoming in early year.
