V. Trees: Flowers: Plants
The Wreath
Meleager of Gadara (1st Century B.C.)
 
From the Greek by William M. Hardinge

NOW will I weave white violets, daffodils
    With myrtle spray,
And lily bells that trembling laughter fills,
    And the sweet crocus gay:
With these blue hyacinth, and the lover’s rose        5
    That she may wear—
My sun-maiden—each scented flower that blows,
    Upon her scented hair.
