DPF / Shorter

For language and poor maidens and the last day of June, since I know how to count these things after all, from Sound the Deep Waters: Women’s Romantic Poetry in the Victorian Age. 

from The Mountain Maid / by Dora Sigerson Shorter

Half seated on a mossy crag,
      Half crouching in the heather;
I found a little Irish maid,
      All in June’s golden weather.
