Excerpt from The Perpetual Flowering Carnation: With a Chapter on the American System of Carnation Culture

Reflections of a Carnation Grower.

To-day as I laboured with all my power
To grow, in perfection, the beautiful flower,
I looked on its beauty and quaffed its perfume,
I thought, alas! of its ultimate doom.
When its beauty and fragrance have vanished away
Its purpose is served, though it he but a day.
Then I think, can it be that I've laboured in vain?
Has my toil brought only personal gain?
I reflect again. Ah! happy thought,
Perhaps to some life it has happiness brought;
Perhaps at some bedside its beauty was shed,
Or its purity some life to better things led;
Perhaps graced the altar, while vows were made,
Or on the grave of some loved one 'twas laid.
It may have done good in a thousand ways
With its influence spread, like the bright sun's rays.
Life's dreary pathways it may have brightened,
Life's many cares it has surely lightened.
Ah! truly my labours have not been in vain,
The thought gives me cheer and courage again.
Though the daily wage he ever so small,
And the calloused hands much toil recall:
Ah! be happy, 0 toiler, 'neath roof of glass,
Be not discouraged or lightly pass
The beautiful chance that is offered to you
To happiness cause, and much good do
By life's pathways with Carnations strewing,
Ah! be ye not weary in well doing.
