As well as any bloom upon a flower I like the dust on the nettles, never lost Except to prove the sweetness of a shower.
- Edward Thomas
Look at us, said the violets blooming at her feet, all last winter we slept in the seeming death but at the right time God awakened us, and here we are to comfort you.
- Edward Payson Rod
Footfalls echo in the memory
Down the passage which we did not take
Towards the door we never opened
Into the rose garden.
- T.S. Eliot
There's rosemary, that's for remembrance--pray you love, remember. And there is pansies, that's for thoughts.
- William Shakespeare
