Daisy
By Emily Warren
 
COULD you have seen the violets
  That blossomed in her eyes,
Could you have kissed that golden hair,
  And drunk her baby sighs,—
You would have been her tiring-maid        5
  As joyfully as I;
Content to deck your little queen,
  And let the world go by.
 
Could you have seen those violets
  Hide in their graves of snow,        10
Drawn all that gold along your hand,
  While she lay, smiling so,—
O, you would tread this weary earth
  As heavily as I;
Content to clasp her little grave,        15
  And let the world go by.

  The Overland Monthly. 1870.
