The Lonely Flower

1

O bonny is the lonesome flower
That blossoms in the lonely glen
Self sharing dew and sun and shower
And blooming from the eyes of men

2

And bonnily awoke the morn
Upon its undefiled bloom
The sweetest flower that ere was born
Is hidden in the vales of broom

3

Its leaves are wet with drops of dew
And so's the woodlarks spotted breast
Brushing them off from where she flew
The cowslip close beside her nest

4

Its root increased from year to year
Its peeps they blossomed all the may
The school-boy knew not where to spier
The milkmaid passed it every day

5

O bonny is the lonesome flower
That blossoms in the lonely glen
Shares by itself the sun and shower
And blossoms from the eyes of men
