LOVE AMONG THE ROSES

"SEEK ye Love, ye fairy-sprites?

Ask where reddest roses grow.

Rosy fancies he invites,

And in roses he delights,

Have ye found him?" "No!"

"Seek again, and find the boy

In Childhood’s heart, so pure and clear.

Now the fairies leap for joy,

Crying, "Love is here!"

"Love has found his proper nest;

And we guard him while he dozes

In a dream of peace and rest

Rosier than roses."

Jan. 3, 1878.
