A spread of purple heather across a Scottish brae,
Violets peeping shyly along a forest way;
Beds of healing lavender, with foxgloves blooming near,
Delphinius and fusia, the scent of hyacynth so clear;
Purple morning glories climbing up a garden wall,
And purple cala lillies, so graceful, and so tall;
Cyclomen and crocus, and pansies growing 'round,
Fairy umbrellas, and tulips covering the ground;
Wisteria and sweetpea, lilac and dahlia too,
So many shades of purple just waiting there for you;
A feast of colour for the eye, which shade do you like best?
Each one, another shade that sets off all the rest.
