To The Baron De Humboldt, Poem by Helen Maria Williams

To The Baron De Humboldt,

Rating: 5.0


ON HIS BRINGING ME SOME FLOWERS IN MARCH.


SOOTH'D I receive the flowers you bring,
Whose charm anticipates the Spring;
Whose tints in vernal freshness vie
With plants beneath an austral sky,--
Those glowing plants that, long unknown,
Your travell'd science made our own:--
Bright gift! in lavish grace array'd,
Thy flowers have only bloom'd to fade,--
Their transient being soon forgot:
How far unlike the giver's lot!
