“Many a flower blooms unseen in the desert”
Anybody know where that’s from?

Thomas Gray's Elegy written in a country churchyard.

Full many a gem of purest ray serene,
The dark unfathom'd caves of ocean bear:
Full many a flow'r is born to blush unseen,
And waste its sweetness on the desert air.

Just one stanza in a longer poem.
