Beautiful Woman (fragment) & With our little ones...

Beautiful woman visions dwell
Of heavens joy about thee
& every step I take is hell
That walks thro life without thee

LP 10

When with our little ones we spent
Each Sunday after tea
And up the woods dark side we went
Or pastures rushy lea
To look among the woodland boughs
To find the bird' retreat,
Or crop the cowslap for the cows

Then sat to rest the little feet
In many a pleasant place
And see the lambs who tried to bleat
Come first in every race
Then laughd the childerns joys to view
Who ran across the lea
At birds that from the rushes flew
& many a wandering bee

LP 10

Both published in 'Overland Monthly' (1873)
