174. The Daisies
By James Stephens
IN THE scented bud of the morning—O,
  When the windy grass went rippling far,
I saw my dear one walking slow,
  In the field where the daisies are.
We did not laugh and we did not speak        5
  As we wandered happily to and fro;
I kissed my dear on either cheek,
  In the bud of the morning—O.
A lark sang up from the breezy land,
  A lark sang down from a cloud afar,        10
And she and I went hand in hand
  In the field where the daisies are.
