Letty's Globe by Charles Tennyson Turner

When Letty had scarce pass'd her third glad year,
...And her young artless words began to flow,
One day we gave the child a colour'd sphere
...Of the wide earth, that she might mark and know,
By tint and outline, all its sea and land.
...She patted all the world; old empires peep'd
Between her baby fingers; her soft hand
...Was welcome at all frontiers. How she leap'd,
...And laugh'd and prattled in her world-wide bliss;
But when we turn'd her sweet unlearned eye
On our own isle, she raised a joyous cry--
'Oh! yes, I see it, Letty's home is there!'
...And while she hid all England with a kiss,
Bright over Europe fell her golden hair.

.....Letty's Globe by Charles Tennyson Turner (1808-79)
