Poetry of Kansas


I know where the deep blue violets bloom
    Down the dewy glade and grassy dell,
And where pink roses waft perfume,
    On the summer breeze I know full well.
And I know where a rarer blossom blooms,
    A Rose, more fair than fairest flowers,
Her breath more sweet than floral fumes___
    Her face more fair than floral bowers.
