Under the Wattle
By Douglas Brook Wheelton Sladen (1856–1947)
 
‘WHY should not Wattle do
  For Mistletoe?’
Ask’d one—they were but two—
  Where wattles grow.
 
He was her lover, too,        5
  Who urged her so—
‘Why should not Wattle do
  For Mistletoe?’
 
A rose-cheek rosier grew;
  Rose-lips breathed low—        10
‘Since it is here—and You—
  I hardly know
Why Wattle should not do.’
