1316. With Lilacs
 
By Charles Henry Crandall
 
 
I BEG the pardon of these flowers
For bringing them to one whose hair
Alone doth shame, beyond compare,
The sweetest blooms of richest bowers.
 
I beg the pardon of this maid        5
For offering them with hand less pure,
A heart less perfect, needing cure
By Love’s own music, softly played.
