She Had Trod Many Sicilian Fields

William R. Flint (Scottish, 1880-1969) 1910 Watercolor, glazed 9.75 x 12.75” E.5.1 A Monody: O' easy access to the hearer's grace / When Dorian shepherds sang to Proserpine! / For she herself had trod Sicilian fields / She knew the Dorian's water's gush divine, / She knew each lily white which Enna yields, / Each rose with blushing face!
