"How dear to this heart are the scenes of my childhood,/ When fond recollection presents them to view!/ The orchard, the meadow, the deep-tangled wild-wood,/ And every loved spot which my infancy knew!/ The wide-spreading pond, and the mill that stood by it,/ The bridge, and the rock where the cataract fell,/ The cot of my father, the dairy-house nigh it,/ And e'en the rude bucket that hung in the well./ The old oaken bucket, the iron-bound bucket,/ The moss-covered bucket that hung in the well." [P. 16.]
