A woman standing outdoors on a cleared path, turned away from the viewer. She is holding a book loosely behind her back. Her head is tilted to her right, and she appears to be looking at the landscape garden around the path. Full-page illustration contained within a single-ruled rectangular border.

The Skylark.

Bird of the wilderness,1
Blithesome and cumberless,2
Sweet be thy matin o’er moorland and lea ;3
Emblem of happiness,4
Blest be thy dwelling-place,5
Oh, to abide in the desert with thee ! ”6
