  • To Florence
    Florence (Tuscany)

    I.
    IF all God's world a garden were,
    And women were but flowers;
    If men were bees that busied there
    Through all the summer hours, —
    Oh! I would hum God's garden through,
    For honey, till I came to you.

    II.
    Then I should hive within your hair,
    Its sun and gold together;
    And I should bide in glory there,
    Through all the changeful weather.
    Oh! I should sip but one, this one
    Sweet flower underneath the sun.

    III.
    Oh! I would be a king, and coin
    Your golden hair for money;
    And I would only have to seek
    Your lips for hoards of honey.
    Oh! I would be the richest king
    That ever wore a signet–ring.

    Florence, 1874.
