Earth's crammed with heaven,
And every common bush afire with God,
But only he who sees, takes off his shoes -
The rest sit round it and pluck blackberries.
- Elizabeth Barrett Brownbing
Let me show you
Sweet smell of a delicate whisper
Behind the vision of gardens
Go and read of your life
Tiny ripping at the heart
Drunk from a rose
- Erica Caitlin Lee
Each flower is a soul opening out to nature.
- Gerard De Nerval
When I walk with you, I feel as if I had a flower in my buttonhole.
- William Makepeace Thackeray
