DAISY.

This little Daisy we all love, Because it seems to say, "I'm come to tell good girls and boys, That Winter's gone away."

[Illustration]

SNOWDROP.

There is another flower, too, I dearly love to see; The little Snowdrop, peeping through The frozen ground at me.

[Illustration]

PRIMROSE.

This is a pretty Primrose, In shady lanes it grows; And early in the pleasant spring, In gardens too it blows.

[Illustration]

DAFFODIL.

Here is a formal Daffodil, Though common, yet a favourite still; It seems such joyous news to bring, As harbinger of pleasant Spring.

[Illustration]

MAY-BLOSSOM.

Oh, beauteous, little May-blossom, I am rejoiced that you are come, To smile upon us once again, After the winter's snow and rain.

[Illustration]

VIOLET.

How I do love the Violet! Of all the flow'rs it is my pet; How snug it hides its little head In the green leaves of its low bed.

[Illustration]

LILY OF THE VALLEY.

Lowly Lily of the Vale, To me you tell a useful tale: You say, "Be pretty as you will, Yet modesty is lovelier still."

[Illustration]

FORGET-ME-NOT.

"Forget me not:" no, lovely flow'r, I'll think on thee for many an hour: If I could paint, I'd copy thee; Then thou wouldst long remember'd be.

[Illustration]

TULIP.

The Tulip, with its varied hues Of crimson, brown, and rich dark blues, (Tho' scentless,) splendid you appear, When thickly set in rich parterre.

[Illustration]

ROSE.

I cannot wonder that the Rose Is such a favourite flower; How beautiful and sweet it is, With jess'mine in the bower.

[Illustration]

SUNFLOWER.
