The foxglove, with its stately bells
Of purple, shall adorn thy dells;
The wallflower, on each rifted rock,
From liberal blossoms shall breathe down,
(Gold blossoms frecked with iron-brown,)
Its fragrance; while the hollyhock,
The pink, and the carnation vie
With lupin and with lavender,

To decorate the fading year;

And larkspurs, many-hued, shall drive

Gloom from the groves, where red leaves lie,
And Nature seems but half alive.

D. M. MOIR-The Birth of the Flowers. St. 14.

Anemones and seas of gold,

And new-blown lilies of the river, And those sweet flow'rets that unfold Their buds on Camadera's quiver.

MOORE-Lalla Rookh. Light of the Harem.

He bore a simple wild-flower wreath:
Narcissus, and the sweet brier rose;
Vervain, and flexile thyme, that breathe
Rich fragrance; modest heath, that glows
With purple bells; the amaranth bright,
That no decay, nor fading knows,
Like true love's holiest, rarest light;

And every purest flower, that blows

In that sweet time, which Love most blesses, When spring on summer's confines presses. THOMAS LOVE PEACOCK-Rhododaphne. Canto I. L. 107.

In Eastern lands they talk in flowers,

And they tell in a garland their loves and cares; Each blossom that blooms in their garden bowers, On its leaves a mystic language bears. PERCIVAL-The Language of Flowers.
