Kilmeny of the Orchard
by Lucy Maud Montgomery


To my cousin
Beatrice A. McIntyre
this book
is affectionately dedicated

"Kilmeny looked up with a lovely grace,
But nae smile was seen on Kilmeny's face;
As still was her look, and as still was her ee,
As the stillness that lay on the emerant lea,
Or the mist that sleeps on a waveless sea.

. . . . . . . . . . .

Such beauty bard may never declare,

For there was no pride nor passion there;

. . . . . . . . . . .

Her seymar was the lily flower,

And her cheek the moss-rose in the shower;
And her voice like the distant melodye
That floats along the twilight sea."

The Queen's Wake
