LYNTON VERSES: 3, by                     Poet's Biography
First Line: Milk! Milk! Milk!
Last Line: Ah, mary, mary!
Alternate Author Name(s): Brown, T. E.
Subject(s): Milk; Milkmen; Milkmaids

Milk! milk! milk!
Straight as the Parson's bands,
Streaming like silk
Under and over her hands --
What is Mary scheming?
What is Mary dreaming?

Swish! swish! swish!
Pressing her sweet young brow,
Smooth as a dish,
To the side of the sober cow --
Can she tell no tale then?
Nought but milk and pail then?

Strip! strip! strip!
Far away over the sea
Comes there a ship,
The ship of all ships that be?
Ah, little fairy!
Ah, Mary, Mary!
