by Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830 - 1894)

Heartsease in my garden bed
Language: English 
Heartsease in my garden bed,
  With sweetwilliam white and red,
Honeysuckle on my wall:--
  Heartsease blossoms in my heart
When sweet William comes to call,
  But it withers when we part,
And the honey-trumpets fall.
