„Here's the lily, here the rose
Her full chalice shall disclose;
Here's narcissus wet with dew,
Windflower and the violet blue.
Wear the garland I have made;
Crowned with it, put pride away;
For the wreath that blooms must fade;
Thou thyself must fade some day, Rhodocleia.“

— Maurice Baring, "The Garland", from Orpheus in Mayfair and Other Stories and Sketches.

Maurice Baring
1874 - 1945
