AN OFFERING, by                    
First Line: Velvet cowslips, tawny hue
Last Line: For you, these glowing flowers, my friend.
Subject(s): Flowers; Spring

VELVET cowslips, tawny hue,
Frail butterfly's twin wing;
They grew in the shade of a dusky yew,
Dipped roots in a bubbling spring.

Cowslip clusters, moist with dew,
Roused by a young breeze scampering;
Yellow and cool heaped on green grass,
Clear drops trickle from leaves tapering.

Golden cowslips, bright at heart
A dart of singing orange gleams:
In shining bowls of burnished brass.
Wraith of perfume: lemon-groves of dreams.

Cowslips, armfuls, crisp, piled high,
Cream-pale with copper-topaz blend;
Fresh as air in rain-drenched sky—
For you, these glowing flowers, my friend.
