OCTAVES IN AN OXFORD GARDEN: 11, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Soon will sweet primrose be a faded crone
Last Line: To live in silence and to pass unknown.
Subject(s): Gardens & Gardening; Nature; Primroses


Soon will sweet Primrose be a faded crone,
Yet seeks she now nor flattery nor fame;
And Phlox upon the morrow lays no claim
When her shed bloom shall be around her blown
This Beech, 'neath whom their many kindred shone
As fair, hath ne'er heard any wish a name,
And even he hath reckoned it no shame
To live in silence and to pass unknown.
