Under The Wattle - Poem by Douglas Brooke Wheelton Sladen

"Why should not wattle do
   For mistletoe?"
Asked one -- they were but two --
   Where wattles grow.

He was her lover, too,
   Who urged her so --
"Why should not wattle do
   For mistletoe?"

A rose-cheek rosier grew;
   Rose-lips breathed low;
"Since it is here, and YOU,
   I hardly know
Why wattle should not do."
