136. Jeannie Marsh
 
By George Pope Morris
 
 
JEANNIE MARSH of Cherry Valley
At whose call the muses rally;
  Of all the nine none so divine
As Jeannie Marsh of Cherry Valley.
She minds me of her native scenes,        5
  Where she was born among the cherries
Of peaches, plums, and nectarines,
  Pears, apricots, and ripe strawberries.
 
Jeannie Marsh of Cherry Valley,
In whose name the muses rally;        10
  Of all the nine none so divine
As Jeannie Marsh of Cherry Valley.
A sylvan nymph of queenly grace,
  A goddess she in form and feature;
The sweet expression of the place,        15
  A dimple in the smile of nature.
