Flower-de-Luce—Iris
 
Born in the purple, born to joy and pleasance,
  Thou dost not toil nor spin,
But makest glad and radiant with thy presence
  The meadow and the lin.

O flower-de-luce, bloom on, and let the river
  Linger to kiss thy feet!
O flower of song, bloom on, and make forever
  The world more fair and sweet.
        Longfellow—Flower-de-Luce. St. 8.

    Lilies of all kinds,
The flower-de-luce being one!
