[FOR A BIRTHDAY: MAY 20]
On this day to life she came -
May-Rose, my May-Rose!
With scented breeze, with flowered flame,
She touched the earth and took her name
Of May, Rose.
Here, to-day, she grows and flowers -
May-Rose, my May-Rose.
All my life with light she dowers,
And colors all the coming hours
With May, Rose!
