A Green Cornfield 

The earth was green, the sky was blue: 
I saw and heard one sunny morn 
A skylark hang betweent he two, 
A singing speck above the corn; 

A stage below, in gay accord, 
White butterflies danced on the wing, 
And still the singing skylark soared, 
And silent sank and soared to sing. 

The cornfield stretched a tender green 
To right and left beside my walks; 
I knew he had a nest unseen 
Somewhere among the million stalks. 

And as I paused to hear his song 
While swift the sunny moments slid, 
Perhaps his mate sat listening long, 
And listened longer than I did. 


Christina Rossetti (1830-1894)
