6 VIOLKTS. BLUE and white, in soft array, Orer the meadows the Violets lay, Lowly and meek, as if kneeling to pray. A little brook goeth murmuring by, glinting ltd tenderest lullaby, While softly the Violets stir and sigh, And to the mosses gently cling, And dainty bits of color fling Over the meadows wavering. IJst, as they whisper, soft and low. To the warm earth-heart below, Where all sweet treasures spring and grow. And the sweet bird. In yonder tree, I Rings to the Violets merrily. Bending his heart out cheerily. And fleet in: shadows come and go Over the grasses, soft and slow. Down where the blossoms bloom below. Little Violets, dainty and fair.
