CHAPTER IV
PRIVATE LETTERS 1844-1847

I think I do. Let me fold my arms across my breast, and go quietly down the current until where the current ends. ... Adieu, my ever dear friend, and
believe me, your husband's too,
W. S. LANDOR.

ON A PRIMROSE PUT INTO A BOOK OF POEMS.(1)
Umile fior ! dono di Rosa ! mai
Agli occhi mici men bello tu sarai
Quando Io sia con la terra mescolato
Te, qual che d'uno trovera servato,
Ed " Abzati " dira. 'SU ! fior de' fiori !
Sei preferito ad elleri ed allori.

TRANSLATION.
Humble flower ! the gift of Rose !
If to-day thy life must close,
Yet for ever shalt thou be
just as fair and fresh to me ;
And when I am underground
Shalt among these leaves be found,
And the finder shall exclaim,
" Up! arise ! awake to fame !
He who gave thee length of days
Held her flower above his bays."

1 These Italian verses, dated April 12, 1846, are in Lady GravesSawle's album. The translation was printed in " Last Fruit." I found a dried primrose among the odds and ends in Landor's writing-desk.
