The Ancient Apple-Queen
I am the ancient Apple-Queen,Pomona, figure designed by Edward Burne-Jones, background designed by John Henry Dearle, woven by Walter Taylor and John Keich at the Merton Abbey Tapestry Works:
As once I was so am I now.
For evermore a hope unseen,
Betwixt the blossom and the bough.
Ah, where's the river's hidden Gold!
And where the windy grave of Troy?
Yet come I as I came of old,
From out the heart of Summer's joy.
