On every stream, from mountain flowing,

See the little village growing,

Painted school-house, churches steeple,

Speak a wise and moral people ;

Grist Mills, –Shops for manufacture,

Raise their voices, clitter, clatter ;

Bustle, bustle, all commotion,

Wooden clocks and yankee notions.

–from THE MUSICAL GEOGRAPHY by Miss Sarah M. Lyon, Young & Hartt, 1848
