Rhyme Scheme: ABCDEBFGB DHEI AJJBGB

'Twas at early morningA
The dawn was blushing in her purple bedB
When in a sweet embowered gardenC
She the fairest of the goddessesD
The lovely VenusE
Roamed amongst the roses white and redB
She sought for flowersF
To make a garlandG
For her golden headB
-
Snow white roses blood red rosesD
In that sweet garden closeH
Offered incense to the goddessE
Both the white and the crimson roseI
-
White roses red roses blossomingA
But the fair Venus knewJ
The crimson roses had gained their hueJ
From the hearts that for love had bledB
And the goddess made a garlandG
Gathered from the roses redB
