POEM OF THE DAY: A Thought

by Bernard Barton  (1784 – 1849).

A Thought

The rose which in the sun’s bright rays
Might soon have droop’d and perish’d,

With grateful scent the shower repays
By which its life is cherish’d.

And thus have ev’n the young in years
Found flowers within that flourish,

And yield a fragrance fed with tears
That joy could never nourish.
