MY PURPLE GOWN FROM TYRE, by                    
First Line: Pink azaleas and dogwood
Last Line: My purple gown from tyre!

PINK azaleas and dogwood
Are crowded close at my feet.
Whitethroats and warblers
Are weaving a trail between the trees
And cobalt-golden sky.
Now I'll mount Ole Tony and ride the rolling fields.
Old Nineveh's riches will be around me
And my overalls will be
My purple gown from Tyre!
