QUOTES ON FLOWERS


A morning-glory at my window satisfies me more than the metaphysics of books.

WALT WHITMAN, Leaves of Grass

Red Rose, proud Rose, sad Rose of all my days!
Come near me, while I sing the ancient ways.
W. B. YEATS, To The Rose Upon The Rood Of Time
O rose, thou art sick!
The invisible worm,
That flies in the night,
In the howling storm
,
Has found out thy bed
Of crimson joy,
And his dark secret love
Does thy life destroy.

WILLIAM BLAKE, The Sick Rose

Language of flowers. They like it because no-one can hear.

JAMES JOYCE, Ulysses

The modest Rose puts forth a thorn,
The humble sheep a threat’ning horn:
While the Lily white shall in love delight,
Nor a thorn nor a threat stain her beauty bright.
WILLIAM BLAKE, The Lily
