VERSE: "Down in a greened and shady bed A modest bluebell grew It's stalk was bent, it hung it's head As if to hide from view. And yet it was a lovely flower It's colors bright and fair It might have graced a rosy bower Instead of hiding there. Then let me to the valley go The pretty flower to see That I may also learn to grow In sweet humility."
NOTE POSSIBLE CORRECTIONS: There are some errors in the verse. There are 2 places where the word “It’s” is incorrect. There should not be an apostrophe - it should be “Its” because in the context it is used, it is possessive. With the apostrophe, it means “it is”. The other thing I noticed is that it says “stalks was”. It should be either “stalk was” or “stalks were”. AS NOTED ON THE BACK COVER---I FOUND THIS VERSE IN A BOOK OF ANTIQUE SAMPLER VERSES/SAYINGS. I DESIGNED THE SAMPLER AS WRITTEN IN THAT BOOK, BY THAT SAMPLER MAKER. YOU ARE VERY WELCOME TO CHANGE IT.
