Sweetly rest, oh dainty flowers,
Crushed beneath the painters’ feet;
Far too bright you were for ours;
May eternity be sweet.
After some days briefly mourning,
I took my hoe again.
Still intent upon adorning
My yard and my domain.

Have another flower plat.
Oh, my dear, beloved friend,
I wouldn’t ask j/oti that!
