To Carnations: A Song by Robert Herrick

Stay while ye will, or go,
And leave no scent behind ye:
Yet trust me,  I shall know
The place where I may find ye.

Within my Lucia's cheek,
(Whose livery ye wear)
Play ye at hide or seek,
I'm sure to find ye there.

~ Robert Herrick (1591-1674)

English poet
