48. Golden Pulse
 
By John Myers O’Hara
 
 
GOLDEN pulse grew on the shore,
  Ferns along the hill,
And the red cliff roses bore
  Bees to drink their fill;
 
Bees that from the meadows bring        5
  Wine of melilot,
Honey-sups on golden wing
  To the garden grot.
 
But to me, neglected flower,
  Phaon will not see,        10
Passion brings no crowning hour,
  Honey nor the bee.
