LONG years have you been known to me, my friend,
Open and honest do your deeds appear.
But as these beauty-bordered paths I wend,
I catch your meaning, hundredfold more clear.
In warm rich dahlia's yellow, and the blue
Of flax, as tender as a turquoise sky;
From princely purple of the cosmos hue,
Or white moon-flowers that by day must die,
Deeper expression of you do I find,
Depths that mere words ne'er told me, subtle hints
Of soul beneath all showings of the mind,
An emanation from these flower tints.
Long years . . . at last, within this garden spot,
You stand revealed, as earlier you were not.
