C.D. Warner, et al., comp.  The Library of the World’s Best Literature.
An Anthology in Thirty Volumes.  1917.
 
The Lily of the Valley
By George Croly (1780–1860)
 
WHITE bud, that in meek beauty so dost lean
  Thy cloistered cheek as pale as moonlight snow,
Thou seem’st beneath thy huge high leaf of green,
  An eremite beneath his mountain’s brow.
 
White bud! thou ’rt emblem of a lovelier thing,        5
  The broken spirit that its anguish bears
To silent shades, and there sits offering
  To Heaven the holy fragrance of its tears.
