Crownèd with flowers I saw fair...
Language: English 
Crownèd with flowers I saw fair Amaryllis
  By Thyrsis sit, hard by a fount of crystal,
And with her hand, more white than snow or lilies,
  On sand she wrote, "My faith shall be immortal":
But suddenly a storm of wind and weather
Blew all her faith and sand away together.
