The stately children of the wood;

With ivy canopied and interwove

|I plucked a honeysuckle where|
The hedge on high is quick with thorn,
And climbing for the prize, was torn,
And fouled my feet in quag-water;
And by the thorns and by the wind
The blossom that I took was thinnd,
And yet I found it sweet and fair.

Where honeysuckles, ripend by the sun,
Forbid the sun to enter, like favorites,
Made proud by princes, that advance their pride
Against that power that bred it.
