by E. F. Hayward

Take the perfume of the rose,
Take the gentlest breeze that blows,
Take the sweetest of your dreams,
Take the sparkling mountain streams,
Take the honey from a flower,
Take the warm midsummer shower,
Take the songs the angels sing,
Take the clearest bells that ring,
Take the sweetest voice you've heard,
Take the warble of a bird,
Take the brightest star that shines,
Take the odor of the pines,
Take the joy of lover's kiss,
Take a peep at perfect bliss,
Take the sparkle of a gem,
Take, I say, take all of them;
Everything I've named above,
And they spell the one word, "LOVE."
