  18. Your picture reminded me of a poem my daughter had to write for her copywork.

    The Robin's Advice by Sara Orne Jewett

    Down in a field, one day in June,
    The flowers all bloomed together,
    Save one who tried to hide herself,
    And drooped, that pleasant weather.
    A robin that had flown too high,
    And felt a little lazy,
    Was resting near this buttercup,
    Who wished she were a daisy.
    For daisies grow so big and tall;
    She always had a passion
    For wearing frills about her neck
    In just the daisies' fashion.
    And buttercups must always be
    The same old tiresome color,
    While daisies dress in gold and white,
    Although their gold is duller.
    "Dear Robin," said the sad young flower,
    "Perhaps you'd not mind trying
    To find a nice white frill for me
    Some day when you are flying."
    "You silly thing!" the robin said;
    "I think you must be crazy
    I'd rather be my honest self
    Than any made-up daisy.
    "You're nicer in your own bright gown,
    The little children love you. Be the best butercup you can,
    And think no flower above you.
    "Though swallows leave me out of sight,
    We'd better keep our places;
    Perhaps the world would all go wrong
    With one too many daisies.
    "Look bravely up into the sky,
    And be content with knowing
    That God wished for a buttercup
    Just here where you are growing."
