|Sweet letters of the angel tongue,|
Ive loved ye long and well,
And never have failed in your fragrance sweet
To find some secret spell,
A charm that has bound me with witching power,
For mine is the old belief,
That midst your sweets and midst your bloom,
Theres a soul in every leaf.
Maturin M. Ballou.Flowers.

|In Eastern lands they talk in flowers,|
And they tell in a garland their loves and cares:
Each blossom that blooms in their garden bowers
On its leaves a mystic language bears.

Of sunshine and of showers!
