  • See oconee bells.

    September 30, 2010

  • The fairest bloom the mountain know
    Is not an iris or a wild rose
    But the little flower of which i'll tell
    Known as the brave acony bell

    Just a simple flower so small and plain
    With a pearly hue and a little known name
    But the yellow birds sing when they see it bloom
    For they know that spring is coming soon
