The Snowdrop
By Anna Bunston De Bary
CLOSE to the sod
  There can be seen
A thought of God
  In white and green.
Unmarred, unsoiled        5
  It cleft the clay,
Serene, unspoiled
  It views the day.
It is so holy
And yet so lowly.        10
  Would you enjoy
    Its grace and dower
  And not destroy
    The living flower?
Then you must, please,        15
Fall on your knees.
