pink poppy (2)

Of many gifts bestowed on earth
To cheer a lonely hour,
Oh is there one of equal worth
With music’s magic power?

‘Twill charm each angry thought to rest,
‘Twill gloomy care dispel,
And ever we its power can test, –
All nature breathes its spell.

There’s music in the sighing tone
Of the soft, southern breeze
That whispers thro’ the flowers lone,
And bends the stately trees…

 from “Nature’s Music”  by Rosanna Eleanor Leprohon
