My heart to u they have entwined; Irliiweni. white, veriffated and blue. Wild and free, the gift of love dlviue, Where birds, with downy plumes, Flit around tho opening blooms. Plowortng vines, like waving plumes, Shed their beauty o'er the heathy moor And dtntMnsus a rare and rich rjerfume. With brilliant tlnta the eyes they will allure, Both valor a crest and beauty a Dower Are Incomplete without a Bower. Children love to wander In early morn, And tor rest, among the floworn seek, Whsre humming birds at early dawn, Sip from every flower nectar aweet; At every place when) the eye may rest Seat flowery Muy with beauty blest. On Children's Day, flowers In beauty glow, And adorns the river's dusky aide That far surpasses Iris' flowery boy, Or the Gardens of Gul In thoir pride, With till their wealth of rosea ewoot. And waving branches f bridal wreatn. Children's Day that came In "oWf. ""J' Has Hlled my heart with joy and love, For on every s de we see flowers gay, G?ven in love by the hand above, Throuub the sun s brilliant ray They grew to bless this fhlldren't Day. -Omma.
