All verdure that grows upon the margin of a stream
You may say grows from the lip of an angel
Beware not to set foot contemptuously upon the verdure
For that verdure grows from the clay of a tulip cheeked one.

 

Chr 81

All that green-sward which grows on the bank of the rivulet has grown,
as it were, on the lip of a beeing of angelic nature.
Put not thy foot on the grass in contempt, for that
grass has grown from the dust of a moon-face.

F4 20

And this reviving Herb whose tender Green
Fledges the River-Lip on which we lean--
Ah, lean upon it lightly! for who knows
From what once lovely Lip it springs unseen!

HA 20

All verdure that grows upon the margin of a stream,
You may say, grows from the lip of one angel-natured;
Beware not to set foot contemptuously upon the verdure,
For that verdure grows from the clay of one tulip-cheeked.

Nic 59

Qu'elles sont belles, ces verdures qui croissent aux bords des ruisseaux! On dirait qu'elles ont pris naissance sur les lèvres d'une angélique beauté. Ne pose donc pas sur elles ton pied avec dédain, puisqu'elles proviennent du germe de la poussière d'un visage coloré du teint de la tulipe.

P 61

Each bladelet of grass on the bank of the stream't hath sprouted,
From the lip of some angel-fair one, 't would seem,'t hath sprouted:
Beware lest on aught of the greensward in scorn thou trample;
From the dust of some tulip-cheek, I deem, 't hath sprouted.

Th 104

Each tuft of green the river brims display.
As down on angel's lip doth grow, you'd say;
Ah, trample not this turf! for every blade
Springs from some lovely tulip-cheeked one's clay!

Wh 62

Yon turf, fringing the margent of the stream,
As down upon a cherub's lip might seem,
Or growth from dust of buried tulip cheeks;
Tread not that turf with scorn, or light esteem.
