Oh, the golden-hearted pansies! 

Oh, the velvet-petaled pansies! 

With their shining faces lifted upward in the morning cool.

Oh, the beauty of the pansies, 

And the blooming of the pansies, 

Like a group of rosy children with their faces 

washed for school.

Oh, the budding of the pansies, 

And the blossoming of the pansies, 

Filling all the air around with the faintest of perfume,

Make me sure that purple pansies 

Yellow pansies velvet pansies 

Are the favorite flowers of all that in the Father's garden bloom.
