Representative Text

1 I love the early primrose
That lightens up the lane,
So radiant in the sunshine,
So cheerful after rain.
“Goodbye to dreary winter,”
How gladly doth it sing,
And tells of milder weather,
And hopeful, happy spring.

2 I wish that like the primrose
My life were always bright,
And shone in darkest pathways
With mild and constant light;
I wish that I reflected
Each sunray from above,
I wish that ‘neath the storm cloud
I always smiles with love.

3 I wish that in the valley
As on the swelling hill,
Seen, or unseen, with beauty
I did my task fulfill;
In life’s secluded copses
As in the garden gay,
Beside the forest foot-track
As by the broad highway.

4 I would be ever showing
That winter’s reign is o’er;
A happy pledge and promise
Of joys forevermore;
I would be like the primrose,
And sing, in sun or shade,
Of spring the everlasting,
Of flow’rs that never fade.
