by Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830 - 1894)

Margaret has a milking‑pail
Language: English 
Margaret has a milking-pail,
  And she rises early;
Thomas has a threshing-flail,
    And he's up betimes.
Sometimes crossing through the grass
  Where the dew lies pearly,
They say "Good morrow" as they pass
    By the leafy limes.
