    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 sweift the sunny moments slid,
    Perhaps his mate sat listening long,
    And listened longer than I did.

    - Christina Rossetti
