LOOK at Mere Victorine At her stall in the street With the lily and rose, And the white marguerite, She makes pretty bouquets The whole of the day: There are buyers in plenty Who pass by that way. Little Easil and Amelie, Watching her, stand: Up to Mire Victorine Basil stretches his hand, '* Can't you spare me," says he, "A morsel of green, Or one sweet little flower, Good Mere Victorine ? " " If you come for a flower, Fray where is your sou ? " Answers Mere Victorine, " I can't give one to you— Such flowers as mine Are for selling, you know; You must go to the country, Where wild flowers grow."
