Hope Is Like a Harebell
By Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830–1894)
 
HOPE is like a harebell, trembling from its birth;
Love is like a rose, the joy of all the earth.
Faith is like a lily lifted high and white;
Love is like a lovely rose, the world’s delight.
Harebells and sweet lilies show a thornless growth,        5
But the rose with all its thorns excels them both.
