{E.B. & Co. printed on top}
I wish You a
New Year

[2nd fan:]
This simple flower betrays my heart
and breathes for me the wish I wot
it bids my thoughts to language start
and asks thee to Forget Me Not.

[3rd fan:]
Learn this lesson while you may,
For time is swiftly flying
The rose that blooms and
smiles to-day,
tomorrow may be dying.

[4th fan:]
Emblem of Modesty.
Fain would'st thou hide thy head
Sweet flower it cannot be,
The constant fragrance shed
Around thy leafy bed
Betrayeth thee.

[5th fan:]
Like the lily fair
Let thy heart e'er be
Emblem of Truth and Purity
Shielding from every snare,
And ever guiding thee
To a joyous immortality.
