Went up a year this evening!
I recollect it well!
Amid no bells nor bravoes
The bystanders will tell!
Cheerful-as to the village-
Tranquil-as to repose-
Chastened-as to the Chapel
This humble Tourist rose!
Did not talk of returning!
Alluded to no time
When, were the gales propitious-
We might look for him!
Was grateful for the Roses
In life's diverse bouquet-
Talked softly of new species
To pick another day;
Beguiling thus the wonder
The wondrous nearer drew-
Hands bustled at the moorings-
The crown respectful grew-
Ascended from our vision
To Countenances new!
A Difference-A Daisy-
Is all the rest I knew!
