Loves Emblems

Written by: John Gould Fletcher | Biography
 | Quotes (7) |
 NOW the lusty spring is seen;
 Golden yellow, gaudy blue,
 Daintily invite the view:
Everywhere on every green
Roses blushing as they blow,
 And enticing men to pull,
Lilies whiter than the snow,
 Woodbines of sweet honey full:
 All love's emblems, and all cry,
 'Ladies, if not pluck'd, we die.
' Yet the lusty spring hath stay'd; Blushing red and purest white Daintily to love invite Every woman, every maid: Cherries kissing as they grow, And inviting men to taste, Apples even ripe below, Winding gently to the waist: All love's emblems, and all cry, 'Ladies, if not pluck'd, we die.
'
