|QUOTATION:||Hope is like a harebell, trembling from its birth,|
Love is like a rose, the joy of all the earth,
Faith is like a lily, lifted high and white,
Love is like a lovely rose, the worlds delight.
Harebells and sweet lilies show a thornless growth,
But the rose with all its thorns excels them both.
