Fragment Friday - The Blooming Edition

From Cocoon forth a Butterfly
As Lady from her Door
Emerged—a Summer Afternoon—
Repairing Everywhere—
Emily Dickinson

The pedigree of honey does not concern the bee--
 a clover, anytime, to him
is aristocracy.   
Emily Dickinson


Butterflies are self propelled flowers. 
Robert H. Heinlein


Stay near me---do not take thy flight!
A little longer stay in sight!
Much converse do I find I thee,
Historian of my infancy !
Float near me; do not yet depart!...
William Wordsworth


I perhaps owe having become a painter to flowers. 
Claude Monet


I will be the gladdest thing
Under the sun!
I will touch a hundred flowers
And not pick one.
Edna St. Vincent Millay

Thanks, Oonah. One of the few flowers whose fragrance I can tolerate. :)
