Alternate Author Name(s): Davies, W. H.


ONE morning, when the world was grey and cold,
And every face looked dull and full of care,
There passed me, puffing clouds of silver breath,
A lovely maiden, with a jaunty air.

The red carnations flamed in both her cheeks,
Her teeth all there and shown; while either eye
Shone like a little pool on Christchurch Hill
When it has stolen more than half the sky.

And when I saw such beauty, young and fresh,
So proud, although the day was grey and cold,
"Who ever saw," I laughed, and stared amazed,
"Such impudence before in this old world!"
