Here (Limask roses; white and red,
Out of my lap Snit take I,
Which still shall run along the thread- 7
Ny chiefest flower this make I. -
Among these roses in a row, `-
Nest . plaee I pinks in plenty,
Thpsetiouble pansies then for show,
And will not this be dainty? -
The pretty.panaythen Fl( tie,
• Like atones soave chain inehasing;
And next to them, their near ally,
Th e purple, violet placing. -
The curious choice dove July flower, •
Whose kind Night the (mutation;
For sweetness of most sovereign pbwer,
Shall i help my wreath to fashion;
Whose sundry colors of oue kind,
First from one root 'derived,
Then, in their several suits' I'll bind :
My garland so contrived.
A course of cowslips then stick,
And here and there
The pleasant primrose down I'll prick,
Like pearls that-will show rarely;
Then with these marigolds make
Ify.garland somewhitt swelling, -
These - honeysuckles then 111 take, •
Whose sweets shall help theiesmelling
This lily and the flenr4le-lis,
For color much contenting,
For that-1 them - do only prize- :
They are hut poor in scenting;
The daffotlil most dainty is, -
To match with these in meetness;
The columbine compared to this,
All much alike for sweetness.
The in their nattires - only are
Fit to emboss the border,
Therefore take especial care
To pLice'them in their order;
. . .
sweetosilliams, tampions, sops-in-wine,
one by another neatly;
Thus have I I ihadc this wreath of mine,
And finished it featly. • ..

boom of my Own anemias in her behalf. .

to say she had-tie

from the man, to be addressed by the master;
