fairiest slip of a thing, 

CClith a 6ain6borough hat, 

like a butterfly's wing, 

Cilted up at one side 

with the jauntiest air, 

Hnd a hnot of red roses 
sown in under there 

cohere the shadows are 

lost in her hair.

Chen a cameo face, 

carven in on a ground 

Of that shadowy hair where 
the roses are wound; 

Hnd the gleam of a smile 

O as fair and as faint 

Hnd as sweet as the 
masters of old used to paint 

Round the lips of 

their favourite saint!

Little tilt of the

O what artist on earth, 

with a model like this, 

Rolding not on bie palette

Nor the pigment to hint 

of the hue of her hair,

O what artist could dare 

Co expect a result 

half so fair?

Chan the morning-glories mahes, 
Hnd the sunshine would look sadder

Rlbispered with a smile and said 

UXc must pick a bunch and putt 'em 
In ber band wben sbe wuz dead.

'Che Rose 

It tossed its bead at 

the wooing breeze; 

Hnd tbe sun, like 

a basbful swain^ 

Beamed on it tbrougb 

tbc waving trees 

Cnitb a passion 

all in vain, — 



for my rose laugbed 

in a crimson glee, 

Hnd bid in tbe leaves 
in wait for me.

The Rose 

Che boncy-bec came 
there to sing 

Ris love through 

the languid hours, 

Hnd vaunt of his hixes, 

as a proud old hing 

)VIight boast of 

bis palace-towers: 

But my rose bowed 
in a mochery, 

Hnd hid in the leaves 
in wait for me.

Che buTntning-bird, 

like a courtier gay, 

Dipped down rcitb 

a dalliant song, 

Hnd twanged bis wings 

tbrough tbe roundelay 

Of love tbe

Yet my rose turned 

from bis minstrelsy 

Hnd bid in tbe leaves 
in wait for me.
