by Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830 - 1894)

In the meadow ‑‑ what in the meadow?
Language: English 
In the meadow -- what in the meadow?
Bluebells, buttercups, meadowsweet,
And fairy rings for the children's feet
    In the meadow.

In the garden -- what in the garden?
Jacob's-ladder and Solomon's-seal,
And Love-lies-bleeding beside All-heal
    In the garden.
