MIGNONETTE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Give me the earth, and I might heap
Last Line: Betrays the daintier hand of god.
Alternate Author Name(s): Father Tabb
Subject(s): Mignonettes


Give me the earth, and I might heap
A mountain from the plain;
Give me the waters of the deep,
I might their strength restrain;
But here a secret of the sod
Betrays the daintier hand of God.
