To enjoy more of the detail of this goode and honeste English flower
As ye set the designe that your needle may follow,
Neglect not the common wayside flowers,
Borage, cowslip and Queen Anne's Lace,
And most particularly our goode English Days-Eye.
An honest flower she is,
Bright gay, with sunny face,
Full open-petaled and easy to stitch
And naught of the French about her!
