First Line: There is a roadside ditch I know
Last Line: And sugar beets in long straight rows.
Subject(s): Wellesley College


THERE is a roadside ditch I know
Where cat-tails grow,
And on its bank
Soft tufts of feathering anise stand,\
Emerald and rank,
Amid the silvering wild oats, fanned
To a flutter by the wandering wind;
And there I find
Reddening, seed-hung, sprays of dock,
And white star-faces of a lowly weed, --
Gay wild things that make mock
Of conquered fields,
Where barley grows,
And sugar beets in long straight rows.
