Sincere Affection





Image of flowers
with word:-


What shall I ask to
be given to me,

Of all that is lovely
in earth, air, or sea,

A delicate leaflet, a
bird on the wing,

A jewel, the rarest
King's diadem.
Ah, no! much loved one.
far dearer to me,

Would be one beaming
smile of affection
from thee.
