Spring Wildflowers

Tis pleasant ‘mid the never-ending strife
Of this too busy, mammon-loving age,
When Nature’s gentler charms so few engage,
To muse at leisure on the quiet life
Of earlier days, when every humble flower
Was known to all, and cherished as a dower.

James Inglis Cochrane, Sonnets and Miscellaneous Poems, 1853
