What happy place we travel through!
Did wallflowers ever look so gay?
Kissed by the periwinkle blue
The old wall stoops above our way.

The chestnut climbs above the church
And torches holds for the sun's amaze,
The wind-cock glitters on his perch,
The cows in dreams of grasses gaze.

And for this blackclad ghost-like maid
Whose cobbled shoes so wearily trace
The dust, whose gaze on ground is laid,
Whose steps are wounds -- what happy place?
