On The Grassy Banks - Poem by Christina Georgina Rossetti

On the grassy banks
Lambkins at their pranks;
Woolly sisters, woolly brothers
Jumping off their feet
While their woolly mothers
Watch by them and bleat.

    SUPERB
    On the grassy banks
    Lambkins at their pranks;
    Woolly sisters, woolly brothers
    Jumping off their feet
    While their woolly mothers
    Watch by them and bleat.
