VP_009682 Verse 1There is a dear little flow'r that I love and the sweet pea is its name, Its odor like a breath from Heaven has earned its ever lasting fame, Around my window it clusters when springtime has come and I feel a childish joy, Then think of the mother departed Who planted it oft for her boy. Chorus 1Oh gentle flow'r of memory, I would your blossoms sweet could ere remain, The roses fair can not compare, Oh haste the day when you will come again, In early spring, 'Tis quite the thing, To twine you into garlands 'neath the trees, Of all the rest I love you best, My little dainty darling flow'r sweet peas. Verse 2Oft in my childhood I've woven a crown ere its bloom could fade away, And proudly chose a pretty playmate, Then made her little queen at play. Oh pretty posey you've taught me the lesson of love and when springtime comes again, As over the meadows I wander I'll tenderly sing this refrain.
