Give me odorous at sunrise a garden of beautiful flowers where I can walk undisturbed.
- Walt Whitman
The Earth Laughs in flowers
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
And I will make thee beds of roses
And a thousand fragrant posies.
- Christopher Marlowe
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
