|Spice (Umbellularia Californica)|
|The Spice-Tree lives in the garden green,|
Beside it the fountain flows;
And a fair Bird sits the boughs between,
And sings his melodious woes.

That out-bound stem has branches three;
On each a thousand blossoms grow;
And old as aught of time can be,
The root stands fast in the rocks below.
