Three Flowers

I made a little song about the rose
And sang it for the rose to hear,
Nor ever marked until the music's close
A lily that was listening near.

The red red rose flushed redder with delight,
And like a queen her head she raised.
The white white lily blanched a paler white,
For anger that she was not praised.

Turning I left the rose unto her pride,
The lily to her enviousness,
And soon upon the grassy ground espied
A daisy all companionless.

Doubtless no flattered flower is this, I deemed;
And not so graciously it grew
As rose or lily: but methought it seemed
More thankful for the sun and dew.

_Dear love, my sweet small flower that grew'st among
The grass, from all the flowers apart,--
Forgive me that I gave the rose my song,
Ere thou, the daisy, hadst my heart!_

(The end)

Three Eternities
Lo, thou and I, my love,And the sad stars above,--Thou and I, I and thou!Ah could we lie as nowEver and aye, my love,Hand within hand, my love,Heart within heart, my dove, Through night and day For ever!Lo, thou and I, my love,Up in the sky above,Where the sun makes his homeAnd the gods are, my love,One day may wander fromStar unto star, my love,--Soul within soul, my love, Yonder afar For ever!Lo, thou and I, my love,Some time shall lie, my love,Knowing not night from day,Knowing not toil from rest,--Breast unto breast, my love,Even as now for aye:Clay within clay,

I know not if they erred Who thought to seeThe tale of all the times to be, Star-character'd; I know not, neither care, If fools or knaves they were. But this I know: last night On me there shone_Two stars_ that made all stars look wan And shamed quite, Wherefrom the soul of me Divined her destiny.(The end)William Watson's poem: Love's Astrology
