Poem by Thomas Stearns Eliot


Cousin Nancy


Miss Nancy Ellicott Strode across the hills and broke them,
Rode across the hills and broke them
The barren New England hills
Riding to hounds
Over the cow-pasture.

Miss Nancy Ellicott smoked
And danced all the modern dances;
And her aunts were not quite sure how they felt about it,
But they knew that it was modern.

Upon the glazen shelves kept watch
Matthew and Waldo, guardians of the faith,
The army of unalterable law.
