Iris, Most Beautiful Flower

  

Iris, most beautiful flower,

Symbol of life, love, and light;

Found by the brook, and the meadow,

Or lofty, on arable height.

You come in such glorious colors,

In hues, the rainbow surpass;

The chart of color portrays you,

In petal, or veins, of your class.

You bloom with the first in Winter,

With the last, in the Fall, you still show;

You steal the full beauty of Springtime,

With your fragrance and sharp color glow.

Your form and beauty of flower,

An artist's desire of full worth;

So Iris, we love you and crown you,

MOST BEAUTIFUL FLOWER ON EARTH!
