by John Keats (March 21st, 1818).

in a Letter to Haydon

Here all the summer could I stay,
       For there's Bishop Teign,
       And King's Teign,
And Coomb at the clear Teign head—
       Where, close by the stream
       You may have your cream
All spread upon barley bread.

       There's Arch Brook
       And there's Larch Brook,
Both turning many a mill;
       And cooling the drouth
       Of the salmon's mouth,
And fattening his silver gill.

       There is Wild wood,
       A mild hood
To the sheep on the lea o' the down,
       Where the golden furze,
       With its green, thin spurs,
Doth catch at the maiden's gown.

       There is Newton Marsh,
       With its spear-grass harsh,—
A pleasant summer level
       Where the maidens sweet
       Of the Market street,
Do meet in the dark to revel.

       There's the Barton rich
       With dyke and ditch,
And hedge for the thrush to live in,
       And the hollow tree
       For the buzzing bee,
And a bank for the wasp to hive in.

       And O, and O
       The daises blow,
And the primroses are waken'd;
       And the violets white
       Sit in silver plight,
And the green buds as long as the spike end.

       Then who would go
       Into dark Soho,
And chatter with dack'd hair'd critics,
       When he can stay
       For the new-mown hay,
And startle the dappled prickets?
