Eyes of some men travel far For the finding of a star; Up and down the heavens they go, Men that keep a mighty rout! Im as great as they, I trow, Since the day I found thee out, Little Flower!Ill make a stir, Like a sage astronomer. WordsworthTo the Small Celandine.
Long as theres a sun that sets, Primroses will have their glory; Long as there are violets, They will have a place in story: Theres a flower that shall be mine, Tis the little Celandine. WordsworthTo the Small Celandine.
Pleasures newly found are sweet When they lie about our feet: February last, my heart First at sight of thee was glad; All unheard of as thou art, Thou must needs, I think have had, Celandine! and long ago, Praise of which I nothing know. WordsworthTo the Same Flower.
