Romance of Rose and Star
The shinning sun, who warmly glows,
Doth send his ray to court the rose.
And enamored with her velvet way,
He proffers her the gift of day.
Then adds a string of dawn and dew,
In tribute to her crimson hue.
Thus blushing in her lovely way,
The rose invites the sun to stay.
The sun then smiling, with a gleam,
Bestows to her a precious beam--
That she may wed, though from afar,
This charming and enchanted star.
