YESTREEN beneath the greenery
I found young Rose in tears that shed
Over a little rose's bed
That was less rosy far than she.
"Dear heart, what can your trouble be?"
I asked the little golden-head.
And she replied, "Ah, sir, if said
It's secret between you and me!"

"As I was passing by, a rose
This same whereon my tears down pour—
Told me this truth in shy soft words,
A bud once blown can never close.
And my fond heart's wide open for
The farmer's boy that drives the herds."
