A Fleeting Glimpse Of A Village
by [?]


(“Tout vit! et se pose avec grace.”)

How graceful the picture! the life, the repose!
The sunbeam that plays on the porchstone wide;
And the shadow that fleets o’er the stream that flows,
And the soft blue sky with the hill’s green side.

Translated by Fraser’s Magazine
