AN OLD-FASHIONED GARDEN.


Oh, to wander at will in a garden,
One of my grandmother's day;
One that my grandmother tended,
Where old-fashioned flowers held sway!

Snowball and flowering almond,
Zinnias gorgeous in dye;
Lilacs scented and purple
Which regal robes outvie;

Great silky, blood-red poppies,
Phlox and sweet-william galore;
Morning glories and holly hocks justy
In those happy days of yore,

Blossomed profusely and sweetly
In splendor and showy array,
But most of those old-time beauties
Are not in favor to-day!
