SONGS FOE CHILDHOOD.
67
VAGRANT PANSIES.
Nellie M. Hutchinson.
They are all in the lily-bed, cuddled close to�gether� Purples, Yellow-cap, and little Baby-blue : How they ever got there you must ask the April l weather, The morning and the evening winds, the sun�shine and the dew.
Why they should go visiting the tall and haughty lilies Is very odd, and none of them will condescend to say : They might have made a call upon the jolly Daf�fodillies ; They might have come to my house any pleas�ant day.
They don't have a good time, I thiuk ; their little faces Look so very solemn underneath each velvet hood : I wonder, don't they feel, among the garden's airs and graces, That shy Cousin Violet is happier in the wood ?
Ah, my pretty Pansies, it's no use to go a-seeking ;
There isn't any good time waiting anywhere : I fancy even Violet is troubled�mildly speaking�-
When somebody plucks her, rinding her so fair.
There's nothiug left for you, my pets, but just to do your duty, Bloom, and make the world sweet � that's the best for you ; There isn't much that's lovelier than your bashful beauty, My Purples, my Yellow-cap, and my Baby-blue!
