PROVERBIAL PHILOSOPHY: INTRODUCTORY, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Art thou beautiful, o my daughter, as the budding rose of april?
Last Line: Ladies shall marvel at its beauty, and a lord shall pluck it at the last.
Subject(s): Tupper, Martin Farquhar (1810-1889); Imitation; Humor


ART thou beautiful, O my daughter, as the budding rose of April?
Are all thy motions music, and is poetry throned in thine eye?
Then hearken unto me; and I will make the bud a fair flower,
I will plant it upon the bank of Elegance, and water it with the water of Cologne;
And in the season it shall "come out," yea bloom, the pride of the parterre;
Ladies shall marvel at its beauty, and a Lord shall pluck it at the last.
