To a Cyclamen
By Walter Savage Landor (1775–1864)
I COME to visit thee again,
My little flowerless cyclamen;
To touch the hands, almost to press,
That cheered thee in thy loneliness.
What could these lovely sisters find        5
Of thee in form, of me in mind,
What is there in us rich or rare,
To make us worth a moment’s care?
Unworthy to be so caressed,
We are but wither’d leaves at best.        10
