. * A little house o'erhung with flowers, Where first the creamy primrose breaka, Where roses tell the summer hours With bursting buds and falling flakes. A little garden, blossom-starred, With jewelled fruit and honeyed bell, . . With holly for its prickly guard, And bee for humming sentinel. A little stream that sings and frets, And hurries onward to the main. Who drinks of it though worlds divide, Will surely come and drink again. (Mr J. Glennie Wilson).
