Landscape and Song.

Selected and Arranged by E. Nesbit.

What dreams the flower cups enfold Within their fragrant leaves, Of meadow ways grown fair with spring, Soft mists that April weaves; And cottage gardens where the scent Of flowers is with the wood smoke blent.

The ceaseless ripple of the brook, Babbling against the broken arch, The little firwood's tasselled spires, The cloud of verdure on the larch; The gold green glimmer of the woods, Where tender twilight always broods.

C. Brooke.


There is dew for the flow'ret, And honey for the bee, And bowers for the wild bird, And love for you and me.

There are tears for the many, And pleasures for the few, But let the world pass on, dear, There's love for me and you.
