BLIGHTED LOVE, by                 Poet's Biography
First Line: Flowers are fresh, and bushes green
Last Line: Blighted love shall never blow!
Alternate Author Name(s): Camoes, Luis De; Camoens, Luiz Vaz De
Subject(s): Disappointment; Grief; Love; Sorrow; Sadness

Flowers are fresh, and bushes green,
Cheerily the linnets sing;
Winds are soft, and skies serene;
Time, however, soon shall throw
Winter's snow
O'er the buxom breast of Spring!
Hope, that buds in lover's heart,
Lives not through the scorn of years;
Time makes love itself depart;
Time and scorn congeal the mind, --
Looks unkind
Freeze affection's warmest tears.
Time shall make the bushes green;
Time dissolve the winter snow;
Winds be soft, and skies serene;
Linnets sing their wonted strain:
But again
Blighted love shall never blow!
