|In the marsh pink orchids faces,|
With their coy and dainty graces,
Lure us to their hiding places
Laugh, O murmuring Spring!
Sarah F. DavisSummer Song.
|Around the pillars of the palm-tree bower|
The orchids cling, in rose and purple spheres;
Shield-broad the lily floats; the aloe flower
Foredates its hundred years.
