Ina Coolbrith

1841 – 1928 / Nauvoo, Illinois

Be Happy, Happy, Little Maid

Be happy, happy, little maid,
Under the rose in blossom!
Whitely flutter its petals down
Over the whiter bosom.

Beauty and sunshine thine today
With never thought of sorrow...
As glad a day, as fair a sky,
Be thine upon the morrow!
