Let us open our leaves like a flower, and be passive and receptive.
- John Keats
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
The old tree is shook
White blossoms slowly float down
Dancers in the wind
- Alexandra Kim
You can't be suspicious of a tree, or accuse a bird or a squirrel of subversion or challenge the ideology of a violet.
- Hal Borland
