I think this poem is one of Milly's best and that the third stanza is the secret to its success. My question is, Does the stanza also contain a dangling modifier? Or is it grammatically accurate?
Spring in FebruaryMilly JourdainA damp wind blew from the west over the frozen ground, and for days a cold mist lay on the earth;Then the sun shone out on little drifts of snow-drops in the gardens, and a pleasant wind dried the roads.Coming up the long gray village in the late afternoon, the sound of thrushes singing all round me before the dark fell was like pure water.And I was made more happy than I can say; and my happiness was like their song.
Now off to feed the greedy little goats and to pickle peppers. I have never pickled peppers before, and I am looking forward to it.
