An Ode to Spring Fancies...

How can one help shivering with delight when one's hot fingers close around the stem of a live flower, cool from the shade and stiff with newborn vigor.

Perfumes are the feelings of flowers.
Heinrich Heine

Flowers whisper 'Beauty!' to the world, even as they fade, wilt, fall.
Dr. Sun Wolf

There is that in the glance of a flower which may at times control the
greatest of creation's braggart lords.
John Muir

When you have only two pennies left in the world, buy a loaf of bread
with one, and a lily with the other.
Chinese Proverb
Luke Wallace

I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze
Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the milky way,
They stretched in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay:
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.

William Wordsworth
