FOREST FLOWERS, by                 Poet's Biography
First Line: Some flowers take station close to where we stay
Last Line: Because they will whoso touches stem
Subject(s): Flowers

Some flowers take station close to where we stay,
And some draw up on either side the way
To watch us, horse and foot, go trooping by,
And take our dust when summer winds are dry.
With neither of these the forest flowers belong,
Whose love for us perhaps is no less strong
Because they will that whoso touches stem
Of theirs must leave the world and come to them.
