Matthew Prior

(1664 - 1721 / Dorset / England)

A Flower. Painted By Simon Varelst


When famed Varelst this little wonder drew,
Flora vouchsafed the growing works to view;
Finding the painter's science at a stand,
The goddess snatch'd the pencil from his hand,
And finishing the piece, she smiling said,
Behold one work of mine that ne'er shall fade.
