Snowdrops in West Wood
Snowdrops in West Wood
"Its root is ebon-black, but sends to light
A stem that bends with flowrets milky white,
The new-born plant with sweet regret she view'd,
Warm'd with her sighs, and with her tears bedew'd,
Its ripen'd seeds from bank to bank convey'd,
And with her lover whiten'd half the shade:
Thus won from death each spring she sees him grow,
And glorious in the vegetable snow,
Which now increas'd thro' wide Britannia's plains,
Its parent's warmth and spotless name retains,
First leader of the flowery race aspires,
And foremost catches the sun's genial fires,
Mid frosts and snows triumphant dares appear,
Mingles the seasons, and leads on the year."
