NAILSWORTH HILL, by            
First Line: The moon, that peeped as she came up
Last Line: Where no such trees have ever been?
Alternate Author Name(s): Davies, W. H.
Subject(s): Light; Moon; White (color)


The Moon, that peeped as she came up,
Is clear on top, with all her light;
She rests her chin on Nailsworth Hill,
And, where she looks, the World is white.

White with her light — or is it Frost,
Or is it Snow her eyes have seen;
Or is it Cherry blossom there,
Where no such trees have ever been?
