The Violet

From the Grand Forks Daily Herald, May 18, 1915. By Jane Taylor.

Down in a green and shady bed
    A modest violet grew;
Its stalk was bent, it hung its head,
    As if to hide from view.

And yet it was a lovely flower,
    Its colors bright and fair;
It might have graced a rosy bower,
    Instead of hiding there.

Yet there it was content to bloom,
    In modest tints arrayed;
And there it spreads its sweet perfume
    Within the silent shade.

Then let me to the valley go,
    This pretty flower to see;
That I may also learn to grow
    In sweet humility.
