Wordsworth, W. (n.d.). Foresight. Retrieved from


Excerpt: THAT is work of waste and ruin- // Do as Charles and I are doing! // Strawberry-blossoms, one and all, // We must spare them-here are many: // Look at it-the flower is small, // Small and low, though fair as any: // Do not touch it! summers two // I am older, Anne, than you. // Pull the primrose, sister Anne! // Pull as many as you can. // -Here are daisies, take your fill; // Pansies, and the cuckoo-flower: // Of the lofty daffodil // Make your bed, or make your bower; // Fill your lap, and fill your bosom; // Only spare the strawberry-blossom! // Primroses, the Spring may love them- // Summer knows but little of them: // Violets, a barren kind, // Withered on the ground must lie; // Daisies leave no fruit behind // When the pretty flowerets die; // Pluck them, and another year // As many will be blowing here. // God has given a kindlier power // To the favoured strawberry-flower.
