MIGNONETTE. fu TO A. . . t it sr a. H. Tender dainty, modest thing, 8t Fitting phrase I cannot bring Half to tell thy loveliness, d Half my loving to confetrs. Vainly all my words I choose; I Vainly all of art I use: Thou art left unuttered yet, a Tender, dainty Mignonette! ! I can say thou art more sweet a Than the fragrancies which meet 11 When the clover and the rose a Their most secret stores disclose; I can may thou art more fair Than the buds which lilies bear: Thou art left unuttered yet, u Tender, dainty Mignonette ! c I can say that color shreds, Even in show of blazing reds, u No such graie of sunny light As in thy pale brown and white, is Mingled never twice the same, In soft tint withost a name: Thou are left unuttered yet, Tender, dainty Mignonette I I can say the honey-bees, f Lingering, drain thy wine's last lees; Little children to and fro, Carrying thy blossoms, go; Lovers give them; subtle, mute, t Fit for Love's sweet gift and suit: t Thou art left unuttered yet, Tender, dainty Mignonette ! Now I add one more low word, Trembling half, lest, being heard, It should win a swift rebuke From dear eyes, whose pleading look, Bidding me no more reveal, Would have power my lips to seal; Leaving thee unuttered yet, Tender, dainty Mignonette! Dainty and beloved thing, liere thy final praise I bring: Thou art like in tender grae One I know, of gentlei face: Thy soft fragrance makes the air Sweet, as moments are which share Sun, with her sweet silentness - Shade, with her half-shy caress. Thy pale tints one language spe.ak With ht.r brow, her eye. her cheek, Triumph in such lowly guise, Wondering in glad surprise, Lavishing with brimnming hands. Generons, past all bars and bands: Ah! ye are not uttered yet, It White twin souls of Mignonette ! Sweetest woman! Sweetest flower! I crown both with sweetest dower Can be framed in human speech When I liken each to each. n Woman, sweeter than the flower, Crowned with Love's immortal dower, Which no love in speech can set. Kiss me, precious Mignonette ! y LAWS OF THE a STATE OF LOUISIANA. PUBLISHED BY AUTHORITY. [No. 106.
