Poem by Christian Milne

Sent with a Flower-Pot Begging a Slip of Geranium

Ive sent my empty pot again
To beg another slip;
The last you gave, Im grieved to tell
Decembers frost did nip.

I love fair Flora and her train
But nurse her children ill;
I tend too little, or too much;
They die from want of skill.

I blush to trouble you again,
Whove served me oft before;
But, should this die, Ill break the pot,
And trouble you no more.

Christian Milne
