Alternate Author Name(s): Bell, Ellis
Subject(s): Bluebells


Sacred watcher, wave thy bells!
Fair hill flower and woodland child!
Dear to me in deep green dells --
Dearest on the mountains wild --

Blue bell, even as all divine
I have seen my darling shine --
Blue bell, even as wan and frail
I have seen my darling fail --
Thou hast found a voice for me --
And soothing words are breathed by thee --

Thus they murmur, 'Summer's sun
Warms me till my life is done --
Would I rather choose to die
Under winter's ruthless sky?

'Glad I bloom and calm I fade
Weeping twilight dews my bed
Mourner, mourner dry thy tears.
Sorrow comes with lengthened years!'
