HOW VIOLETS CAME BLUE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Love on a day, wise poets tell
Last Line: Her blowes did make ye blew.
Subject(s): Flowers; Love; Violets


Love on a day (wise Poets tell)
Some time in wrangling spent,
Whether the Violets sho'd excell,
Or she, in sweetest scent.

But Venus having lost the day,
Poore Girles, she fell on you
And beat ye so, (as some dare say)
Her blowes did make ye blew.
