by Christina Georgina Rossetti

In the meadow - what in the meadow?
Bluebells, Buttercups, Meadow-sweet,
And fairy rings for the children's feet
In the meadow.

In the garden - what in the garden?
Jacob's-Ladder and Solomon's-Seal,
And Love-Lies-Bleeding beside All-Heal
In the garden.

Words inspired by the garden are the sweetest, most beautiful words of all.
