1907 Excerpt: ... upon the greenest lawn--and here We garlanded
fair flowers, to deck some cousin, Maid-waiting 'neath yon
pine-grove; eager, Sw, eet innocence in her reposed shape. Unfolded
bud and ran we through the aisles Of cedars--with their spicy
scents, and tunes, Mating our hearts to thrilled joyance;--ran To
