    Lines to H. N. S. On the Reception of a Rose

    O sweet, lovely flower,
    For me didst thou bloom
    In a far distant bower,
    My path to perfume?
    PSAS 129.7

    For me wast thou nourished,
    In that dear, quiet spot,
    To tell when thou flourished,
    I was not forgot?
    PSAS 130.1

    Thine image, loved sister,
    In fancy I trace,
    And joy in the vision,
    To greet thine embrace;
    But here I have never
    Thy hand clasped in mind;
    Yet round us forever,
    Affection shall twine.
    PSAS 130.2

    And oft this fond token
    Shall whisper to me,
    Of friendship unbroken,
    In remembrance of thee.
    Its freshness may perish;
    But ne’er can depart
    Its fragrance I cherish
    So deep in my heart.
    PSAS 130.3
