A Green Cornfield



A Green Cornfield :




The earth was green, the sky was blue:

I saw and heard one sunny morn

A skylark hang between the 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
