Jean Ingelow Quotes


    An empty sky, a world of heather,
    Purple of foxglove, yellow of broom;
    We two among them wading together,
    Shaking out honey, treading perfume.

    Crowds of bees are giddy with clover,
    Crowds of grasshoppers skip at our feet,
    Crowds of larks at their matins hang over,
