The Violet by Henry Hawkins

The lowlie Virgin view’d. Her modest eye,
Submissive count’nance, thought did relye

With vertues, fragrant colours, round beset,
Close to the earth lay like a Violet;

Such was the Virgin rays’d to be Heaven’s Queene,
Who on the earth, neglected, was not seene.

  1. Thank you My Friends for the share. Much appreciated. You may have noticed over the past week or so I have had to step back from blogging due to on going health issues and hospitalisation. On the road to recovery. Hope to be back full time soon. Happy Smiles Sunday.


we would love to hear from you!
