A wild rose which has grown and flourished in the depths of our yard, near the woods, since long before our home was built. In the air of a late May or June evening, sometimes, we catch a breath of its sweet fragrance.
"My Wild Rose"
by Ellen P. Allerton
I had a garden, which I kept
With busy hands and tender care;
And once, while carelessly I slept,
Fanned softly by the drowsy air,
A wild rose to my garden crept,
And blossomed there.
O, sweet surprise. It seemed to me,
Some fair hand, my heart to bless,
Had brought it there, from wood or lee....
