Brown is my Love
source: Anon.

Brown is my Love, but graceful:
And each renowned whiteness,
Matched with her lovely brown loseth its brightness.

Fair is my Love, but scornful,
Yet have I seen despisèd
Dainty white lilies, and sad flowers well prizèd.


Roger Quilter

Roger Cuthbert Quilter was an English composer, known particularly for his songs.
