113. Poem "A Drop fell on the Apple Tree"

A Drop fell on the Apple Tree -

Another - on the Roof -

A Half a Dozen kissed the Eaves -

And made the Gables laugh -


A few went out to help the Brook

That went to help the Sea -

Myself Conjectured were they Pearls -

What Necklaces could be -


The Dust replaced, in Hoisted Roads -

The Birds jocoser sung -

The Sunshine threw his Hat away -

The Bushes - spangles flung -


The Breezes brought dejected Lutes -

And bathed them in the Glee -

Then Orient showed a single Flag,

And signed the Fete away -


(F846)
