The Courtship Of Miles Standish

The Courtship of Miles Standish - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow It's a little cheesy at times:"Truly, Priscilla," he said, "when I see you spinning and spinning,Never idle a moment, but thrifty and thoughtful of others,Suddenly you are transformed, are visibly changed in a moment;You are no longer Priscilla, but Bertha the Beautiful Spinner."And awesome at others:"Look! you can see from this window my brazen howitzer plantedHigh on the roof of the church, a preacher who speaks to the purpose,Steady, straightforward, and strong, with irresistible logic,Orthodox, flashing conviction right into the hearts of the heathen.
