To a Friend Who Sent Me Some Roses by John Keats 

As late I rambled in the happy fields,
   What time the sky-lark shakes the tremulous dew

   From his lush clover covert;—when anew
Adventurous knights take up their dinted shields:
I saw the sweetest flower wild nature yields,
   A fresh-blown musk-rose; ’twas the first that threw

   Its sweets upon the summer: graceful it grew
As is the wand that queen Titania wields.
And, as I feasted on its fragrancy,
   I thought the garden-rose it far excell’d:

But when, O Wells! thy roses came to me
   My sense with their deliciousness was spell’d:
Soft voices had they, that with tender plea
   Whisper’d of peace, and truth, and friendliness unquell’d.
