by Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830 - 1894)

Rosy maiden Winifred
Language: English 
Rosy maiden Winifred,
With a milkpail on her head,
Tripping through the corn,
  While the dew lies on the wheat
    In the sunny morn.
Scarlet shepherd's-weatherglass
  Spreads wide open at her feet
    As they pass;
Cornflowers give their almond smell
  While she brushes by,
  And a lark sings from the sky
    "All is well."
