A Microscopic Serenade 1


O COME, my love, and seek with me A realm by grosser eye unseen, Where fairer forms will welcome thee, And dainty creatures hail thee queen. In silent pools the tube I'll ply, Where green conferva-threads lie curled, And proudly bring to thy bright eye The trophies of the protist world.
