Thanks for noticing, Joel. I have corrected the typo.

This is one of my favorite poems by Millay.

There is a line missing above, though. You will notice the 2nd stanza has
only 3 lines. It should read something like (this is from memory though):

As I went over Woody Knob
And dipped into the hollow
A youth was coming up the hill
Any maid would follow.

Joel Van Valin from United States
