C.D. Warner, et al., comp.  The Library of the World’s Best Literature.
An Anthology in Thirty Volumes.  1917.
 
To Violets
By Robert Herrick (1591–1674)
 
WELCOME, maids of honor:
        You do bring
        In the Spring,
And wait upon her.
 
She has virgins many        5
        Fresh and fair;
        Yet you are
More sweet than any.
 
Y’ are the maiden posies,
        And so graced        10
        To be placed
Fore damask roses.
 
Yet though thus respected,
        By-and-by
        Ye do lie,        15
Poor girls, neglected.
