GOOD OLD NORWICH! HOW I LOVE THEE-
LOVE THY STRONG AND MASSIVE HILLS;

LOVE THE RUSHING OF THY RIVERS
AND THE BABBLING OF THY RILLS;

LOVE THY ROCKS THAT RISE LIKE BASTIONS,
AND THE VALES THAT STRETCH BELOW;

LOVE THY SUMMERS WITH THEIR SUNSHINE
AND THY WINTERS WITH THEIR SNOW;

LOVE THY CEDARS, SUCH AS FURNISHED
UNTO
LEBANON ITS FAME;
LOVE THE GLORIES OF THY LANDSCAPES,
AND THE GLORY OF THY NAME,

AS A MOTHER LOVES HER DARLINGS,
AS A SAILOR LOVES THE SEA,

AS A WOMAN LOVES HER IDOLS,
SO, DEAR
NORWICH, LOVE I THEE.
ANSON G. CHESTER, 1859
