Subject(s): Flowers

A honeybee buzzed in my ear
A gladsome note -- gay spring is here,
See gorgeous flowers on parade,
Hear feathered choirs from sylvan glade.

A hummingbird on leafy spray
Sang out, "Come, come, do not delay,
A blossom's sway is briefly sweet."
And so I hastened on to greet;

Nile lilies tall of radiant blue,
And lacy ferns fresh-tipped with dew,
Great shaggy poppies row on row,
Stood guarding flowers blooming low;

Verbenas grouped in borders bright
Were flaunting in the golden light;
A daisy winked her amber eye
And charmed the many passersby.

Of all displayed none could compare
With regal float of roses rare --
The Sweetheart rose, queen for a day
Was lovely in her sheer array,
Her maids were gowned in pastel shade --
Such beauty only God has made.
