SHE IS THE GODDESS OF BUDS, FLOWERS, AND GARDENS, SHE IS REPRESENTED AS A BEAUTIFUL NYMPH, WITH A WREATH OF FLOWERS ON HER HEAD, AND A FEW FLOWERS IN ONE OF HER HANDS. "CHLORIS" IS THE QUEEN OF THE FLOWERS AND THE MISTRESS OF THE SPRING. HER ROMAN EQUIVALENT IS "FLORA. "

THIS GODDESS WAS ENDOWED WITH PERPETUAL YOUTH, AND WAS USUALLY REPRESENTED CROWNED WITH FLOWERS AND CARRYING A CORNUCOPIA. SHE WAS ALSO THE WIFE OF "ZEPHYRUS," THE PERSONIFICATION OF THE MILD WEST WIND AND THE MOTHER OF "KARPOS "(FRUIT).

"WHAT TIME THE ROSY-FLUSHING WEST "SLEEPS SOFT ON COPSE AND DINGLE, "WHEREIN THE SUNSET SHADOWS REST, "

"OR RICHLY FLOAT AND MINGLE; "WHEN DOWN THE VALE THE WOOD-DOVE'S TONE"THRILLS IN A CADENCE TENDER. AND EVERY RARE, ETHEREAL MOTE"TURNS TO A WINGED SPLENDOR."JUST AS THE MYSTIC CLOUDLANDS OPE, "

Far up their sapphire portal.

"FAIR AS THE FAIREST DREAM OF HOPE, "

"HALF GODDESS AND HALF MORTAL, "I SEE THAT LOVELY GENIUS RISE, "

"THAT CHILD OF ORIENT TRANCES, "ON WHOSE SWEET FACE THE GLORY LIES "

"OF WEIRD HELLENIC FANCIES, "CHLORIS! BENEATH WHOSE PROCREANT TREAD "

"ALL EARTH YIELDS UP HER SWEETNESS, "THE VIOLET'S SCENT, THE ROSE'S RED, "THE DAHLIA'S ORBED COMPLETENESS,"AND VERDURES ON THE MYRIAD HILLS, "

"THE BREATH OF HER PURE DUTY "HATH NURSED TO LIFE BY SPARKLING RILLS "

"AND FOLIAGCD NOOK'S OF BEAUTY; "TILL BLOOM AND ODOR, BLUSH AND SONG. "

"SO LILL EARTH'S RADIANT SPACES, "THE FADING TOUCH OF SIN, OR WRONG. "

"LEAVES GLAD THE WEARIEST FACES; "AND SO, THROUGH HAPPY SPRING-TIDE DELLS. "

"O'ER MOUNT, AND HELD, AND RIVER, "HER ZEPHYR'S FAIRY CLARION SWELLS, "HER FOOTSTEPS GLANCE FOREVER!"

"PAUL HAMILTON HAYNE"
