The Lilies of France
By Louise Ayres Garnett
 
From “Flowers of War”
(J. F. S.)
FRANCE’S lilies are tall and white,
Brave as the dawn, calm as the night;
And fragrantly they sway above
The quiet head of one I love.
 
Unceasingly these fadeless flowers        5
Hasten their bloom through the war-swept hours,
And many a lad shall have their foam
Washing with peace his new-found home.
 
O France’s lilies are tall with pride,
Flooding the slopes of the western side.        10
It comforts me they sway above
The quiet head of one I love.
