flower petal quotes - 10 of
Ours is the bee's soft belly
and the blush of the rose-petal, lifted, of the flower.
Where the Youth pined away with desire,
And the pale Virgin shrouded in snow, ...
Ah, Sun-flower, weary of time,
Who countest the steps of the Sun, ...
She drew back; he was calm
'It is this that had the power,' ...
A girl could only see
That a flower had marred a man, ...
Lovers, forget your love,
And list to the love of these, She a window flower, And he a winter breeze.
But the flower leaned aside
And thought of naught to say, And morning found the breeze A hundred miles away.
The appeal to heaven breaks off.
The petals begin to fall, in self-forgiveness. ...
The flower-fed buffaloes of the spring
In the days of long ago, ...
Let it be forgotten as a flower is forgotten,
Forgotten as a fire that once was singing gold.
