The Rose of England
By H. P. Lovecraft

------=-O-=------
At morn the rosebud greets the sun
      And sheds the evening dew,
Expanding ere the day is done,
      In bloom of radiant hue;
And when the sun his rest hath found,
Rose-petals strow the garden round!

Thus that blest Isle that owns the Rose
      From mist and darkness came,
A million glories to disclose,
      And spread BRITANNIA’S name;
And ere Life’s Sun shall leave the blue,
ENGLAND shall reign the whole world thro’!
