Song
 
Norman Gale (b. 1862)
 
 
THIS peach is pink with such a pink
  As suits the peach divinely;
The cunning color rarely spread
  Fades to the yellow finely;
But where to spy the truest pink        5
Is in my Love’s soft cheek, I think.
 
The snowdrop, child of windy March,
  Doth glory in her whiteness;
Her golden neighbors, crocuses,
  Unenvious praise her brightness!        10
But I do know where, out of sight,
  My sweetheart keeps a warmer white.
