A fair lady and fair morning
How mggcstive to the mind!
Spied n flower sleeping, yearning,
Bocked by gentlest summer wind.
'It is yearning for my kisses,"
Said the Indy to the morn.
'And I'll till its heart with blisses
Just as true as love was born!"
With a gentle shake she woke it
From Us yearnsng summer rest,
From its branches then site broke it
And she clasped it to her breast.
How she loved ttiat beauty yearning
In the garden! How she kbt-ed
From its leaves the dews of morning
While her blue eyes lilled with mint!
Thus the love that in God' morning
Plucks the Howcr for which you live
Snatches up your dear one, yearning
For the love earth cannot give!
Touches it with angel kisses
In the everlastinc mom,
Aye 1 and fills it full of blisseo
Just as sure as Love is born!
