"Her form was small, her figure light,/ As is some fabled mountain sprite;/ The aerial scarf about her twined,/ Like gossamer, seemed to woo the wind;/ A shape so light, she seemed to be/ That vision which only poets see;/ The spirit of the iris small,/ Poised on the mist of a waterfall." Read's "Wagoner of the Alleghanies." [P. 22.]
