'Beautiful flowers! to me ye fresher seem
From the Almighty hand that fashion'd all,
Than those that flourish by a garden wall;
And I can image you as in a dream,
Fair modest maidens, nursed in hamlets small—
I love ye all!

Beautiful children of the glen and dell—
The dingle deep—the moorland stretching wide,
And of the mossy fountain's sedgy side!
Ye o'er my heart have thrown a lovesdme spell;
And though the worldling, scorning, may deride—
I love ye all!'

Robert Nicoll
