O thou most dear,-before thy feet
I strew these flow'rets fair and sweet;

These blossoms, latest from the tree

Of Britain's gold-branch'd poesy, Now lie where all the virtues meet.

Nor will they wither: neither heat
Nor chill of passing Time can cheat
The world of their rare fragrancy,

O thou most dear.

Nor will Time banish Love, or greet
Thy charms with shadow of defeat :

They bud and bloom, and still with me

Their scent and loveliness will be ; Yes, Love will stay, though Time be fleet,

O thou most dear.

W. D. A.
