The Courtin'

I am seeking the title, author and copy of a fairly famous poem written by an American author. The setting is early American and it is about a young man who goes to see his love but stands outside her window watching her peel apples. A quote from the poem: " She was parin' away like murder and he stood first on one foot and the tuder abd on which one he felt the wust he couldn't a told ye nudder." It goes on and he ups and kisses her and they were married in Church come next Sunday. I thought the title of the poem was "The Courting" but I can't find it anywhere. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I need to memorize the poem by 05/25/04. Thanks. George

George, it's a rather long poem, so here's the link:
It's by James Russell Lowell, The Courtin'
