"Like Violets Pale i' the Spring o' the Year"

Random Poetry List XXVII

Like violets pale i' the Spring o' the year
   Came my Love's sad eyes to my youth;
Wan and dim with many a tear,
But the sweeter for that in sooth:
      Wet and dim,
      Tender and true,
      Violet eyes
      Of the sweetest blue.

Like pansies dark i' the June o' the year
   Grow my Love's glad eyes to my prime;
Rich with the purple splendour clear
   Of their thoughtful bliss sublime:
      Deep and dark,
      Solemn and true,
      Pansy eyes
      Of the noblest blue.

James Thomson (1834-1882)
