William Barnes (1801-1886) is best remembered for his descriptive poetry of rural life in Dorset in the Nineteenth Century.
This is a descriptive piece ostensibly about the cottage maidens who cluster 'out avore their dooers' of an evening, 'vor to chatty an zee voke goo by,' but with typical Barnes melancholy in his reflections about his own lost maiden.
