I will not have the mad Clytie,
 +
Whose head is turned by the sun;
 +
The tulip is a courtly queen,
 +
Whom, therefore, I will shun;
 +
The cowslip is a country wench,
 +
The violet is a nun; -
 +
But I will woo the dainty rose,
 +
The queen of everyone.
 +
 
 +
The pea is but a wanton witch,
 +
In too much haste to wed,
 +
And clasps her rings on every hand
 +
The wolfsbane I should dread; -
 +
Nor will I dreary rosemary
 +
That always mourns the dead; -
 +
But I will woo the dainty rose,
 +
With her cheeks of tender red.
 +
 
 +
The lily is all in white, like a saint,
 +
And so is no mate for me -
 +
And the daisy's cheek is tipped with blush,
 +
She is of such low degree;
 +
Jasmine is sweet, and has many loves,
 +
And the broom's betrothed to the bee; -
 +
But I will plight with the dainty rose,
 +
For fairest of all is she. }}

I will not have the mad Clytie,
Whose head is turned by the sun;
The tulip is a courtly queen,
Whom, therefore, I will shun;
The cowslip is a country wench,
The violet is a nun; -
But I will woo the dainty rose,
The queen of everyone.

The pea is but a wanton witch,
In too much haste to wed,
And clasps her rings on every hand
The wolfsbane I should dread; -
Nor will I dreary rosemary
That always mourns the dead; -
But I will woo the dainty rose,
With her cheeks of tender red.

The lily is all in white, like a saint,
And so is no mate for me -
And the daisy's cheek is tipped with blush,
She is of such low degree;
Jasmine is sweet, and has many loves,
And the broom's betrothed to the bee; -
But I will plight with the dainty rose,
For fairest of all is she.
