There is a wildwood beauty spot,
A sylvan everglade,
Where trilliums in riot grow
Within the forest shade;
Inviolate in loveliness,
Their petals splashed with red,
In loneliness of soul mayhap
'Tis where their hearts have bled.

They lift their faces to the sky
In innocent appeal—
Such beauty speaks unto the soul,
And doth the heart reveal.
Unknown they live, and bloom, and die,
As seasons come and go,
Their sweetness wasted on the air,
Then hid 'neath winter's snow.

Within the depths of human hearts
Love often lies concealed
Like wildflowers in the forest depths,
Unless by chance revealed;
With faces turned towards Heaven's light
Such flowers of beauty grow,
In loneliness and loveliness,
Where only God doth know.
