The Pearl Lies in the Sea (1907)

The pearl lies in the sea,
The rose is set with thorn,
And brave is he who wins the prize
His bosom to adorn.
But deeper than the sea,
And crueller than the thorn,
Is that strange maiden heart of hers,
Wherein her love is born.
Yet mine to dare and do,
Nor idly to repose,
For love is rarer than the pearl,
And sweeter than the rose.
