With daffodils mad footnotes for the spring,
And asters purple asterisks for autumn
- Conrad Aiken
And 't is my faith, that every flower
Enjoys the air it breathes.
- William Wordsworth
Silently a flower blooms,
In silence it falls away,
Yet here now,
at this moment,
at this place,
The world of the flower,
the whole of the world is blooming.
This is the talk of the flower,
the truth of the blossom.
The glory of eternal life is fully shining here.
- Zenkei Shibayama
The old tree is shook
White blossoms slowly float down
Dancers in the wind
- Alexandra Kim
