Have any like Myself
Investigating March,
New Houses on the Hill descried —
And possibly a Church —

That were not, We are sure —
As lately as the Snow —
And are Today — if We exist —
Though how may this be so?

Have any like Myself
Conjectured Who may be
The Occupants of the Adobes —
So easy to the Sky —

‘Twould seem that God should be
The nearest Neighbor to —
And Heaven — a convenient Grace
For Show, or Company —

Have any like Myself
Preserved the Charm secure
By shunning carefully the Place
All Seasons of the Year,

Excepting March — ‘Tis then
My Villages be seen —
And possibly a Steeple —
Not afterward — by Men —
