Subject(s): Nymphs


I KNOW when noon drives shadowward their feet
With silent tread to find their cool retreat,
Where thro' the cresses and the pebbled ooze
The roaming Naiad a random path doth choose
I gaze my fill upon the pale nymph shown
With bare limbs lissom on the green bank prone,
Who droops on to her hand, by lulling streams
Her reed-encircled forehead while she dreams.
