First Line: If recollecting were forgetting
Last Line: That gathered these to-day!
Subject(s): Flowers

IF recollecting were forgetting,
Then I remember not;
And if forgetting, recollecting,
How near I had forgot!
And if to miss were merry,
And if to mourn were gay,
How very blithe the fingers
That gathered these to-day!
