s of that otherwise charming work-the picture part of the poem being Yankee in its effect, as Holmes says, with the dandelion and the Baltimore oriole in the tableaux of the old feudal castle. In even the description of June he finds some of these discords and gives absolute praise only to the description of the brook.
