Edmund Clarence Stedman, ed. (1833–1908).  An American Anthology, 1787–1900.  1900.
 
1726. In a China Shop
 
By George Sidney Hellman
 
 
A DRESDEN shepherdess was one day
Milking a small Delft cow,
When a Sevres Marquis came along—
I saw him smile and bow:
“O lovely shepherdess, hear my song,”        5
I think I heard him say,
“For thou hast captured my porcelain heart,
And by my sword I swear thou art
A star in the Milky Way.”
