The Jasmine

by Ruby Archer

Oh, do you love the jasmine,
That flower of the heart,
Of dreams and rapture redolent,
Nor far from tears apart?

That blossom born of earth?
What miracle 'twould be!
I dare imagine other birth—
Behold my theory:

A jasmine flower of heaven
Came down the Milky Way;
And finding here such piteous need,
Thought merciful to stay.
