Subject(s): Flowers; Roses


The beans in blossom with their spots of jet
Smelt sweet as gardens wheresoever met;
The level meadow grass was in the swath;
The hedge briar rose hung right across the path,
White over with its flowers -- the grass that lay
Bleaching beneath the twittering heat to hay
Smelt so deliciously, the puzzled bee
Went wondering where the honeyed sweets could be;
And passer-by along the level rows
Stooped down and whipt a bit beneath his nose.
