THE BLUET, by                
First Line: Dearest floweret of the meadow
Last Line: And thy golden heart to god!
Subject(s): Flowers

Dearest floweret of the meadow,
Symbol of the Good and Fair,
Growing simply, all unconscious
Of thy perfect life and rare.

Unpretentious, unattractive --
Save to those who wisely see --
More than all thy brighter comrades
Thou art beautiful to me.

Nestling closely to the greenness
Of some unassuming sod,
Thy sweet face turned ever heavenward
And thy golden heart to God!
