The sweetest flower that e'er was planted
By the hand of our great Creator,
In the lovely garden to man granted,
Was Woman - image of her Maker.
Then let our heart and hands be joined,
The wreath of Love let us entwine,
Earth's richest blessings - all combined,
Shall fill up life's sweet Valentine.
Found in "The Moon and Sixpence" by M. Somerset Maugham. Published by The Modern Library.
