February Hour --

The Man who would possess
Must first present
Of minted Holiness.

My Seasons furthest Flower --

 My Season's furthest Flower --
I tenderer commend
Because I found Her Kinsmanless,
A Grace without a Friend.

by Friedrich von Schiller

The Animating Principle

 Nowhere in the organic or sensitive world ever kindles
Novelty, save in the flower, noblest creation of life.

by Emily Dickinson

The Sun is one -- and on the Tare

 The Sun is one -- and on the Tare
He doth as punctual call
As on the conscientious Flower
And estimates them all --

by Emily Dickinson

So gay a Flower

 So gay a Flower
Bereaves the Mind
As if it were a Woe --
Is Beauty an Affliction -- then?
Tradition ought to know --

by Emily Dickinson

A Flower will not trouble her it has so small a Foot

 A Flower will not trouble her, it has so small a Foot,
And yet if you compare the Lasts,
Hers is the smallest Boot --

by Emily Dickinson

The stem of a departed Flower

 The stem of a departed Flower
Has still a silent rank.
The Bearer from an Emerald Court Of a Despatch of Pink.

by Emily Dickinson

I hide myself within my flower

 I hide myself within my flower,
That fading from your Vase,
You, unsuspecting, feel for me --
Almost a loneliness.

by Emily Dickinson

The Grace -- Myself -- might not obtain --

 The Grace -- Myself -- might not obtain --
Confer upon My flower --
Refracted but a Countenance --
For I -- inhabit Her --

Oh honey of an hour

 Oh, honey of an hour,
I never knew thy power,
Prohibit me
Till my minutest dower,
My unfrequented flower,
Deserving be.

by Ogura Hyakunin Isshu

Ono no Komachi

Color of the flower
Has already passed away
While on trivial things
Vainly I have set my gaze,
In my journey through the world.

by Emily Dickinson

The fairest Home I ever knew

 The fairest Home I ever knew
Was founded in an Hour
By Parties also that I knew
A spider and a Flower --
A manse of mechlin and of Floes --

by Mary Shelley

or what should I do here

——— for what should I do here,
Like a decaying flower, still withering
Under his bitter words, whose kindly heat
Should give my poor heart life?

by Barry Tebb


 I am waiting for the sky to flower

Like poems in a winter mind:

And yet they come, maybe trailing along

An urchin gang, sobbing and snotty-nosed.

by Emily Dickinson

Lethe in my flower

 "Lethe" in my flower,
Of which they who drink
In the fadeless orchards
Hear the bobolink!

Merely flake or petal
As the Eye beholds
Jupiter! my father!
I perceive the rose!

by Omar Khayyam

So long as I possess two maunds of wine,

So long as I possess two maunds of wine,
Bread of the flower of wheat, and mutton chine,
And you, O Tulip cheek, to share my hut,
Not every Sultan's lot can vie with mine.

by Emily Dickinson

To love thee Year by Year

 To love thee Year by Year --
May less appear
Than sacrifice, and cease --
However, dear,
Forever might be short, I thought to show --
And so I pieced it, with a flower, now.

by Carl Sandburg


 Memory of you is .
a blue spear of flower.
I cannot remember the name of it.
Alongside a bold dripping poppy is fire and silk.
And they cover you.

by Omar Khayyam

Quoth rose, I am the Yusuf flower, I swear,

Quoth rose, «I am the Yusuf flower, I swear,
For in my mouth rich golden gems I bear»:
I said, «Show me another proof.» Quoth she,
«Behold this blood-stained vesture that I wear!»

by Emily Dickinson

The Flower must not blame the Bee

 The Flower must not blame the Bee --
That seeketh his felicity
Too often at her door --

But teach the Footman from Vevay --
Mistress is "not at home" -- to say --
To people -- any more!

by Emily Dickinson

Nature can do no more

 Nature can do no more
She has fulfilled her Dyes
Whatever Flower fail to come
Of other Summer days
Her crescent reimburse
If other Summers be
Nature's imposing negative
Nulls opportunity --

by Edward Thomas


 OVER the land half freckled with snow half-thawed 
The speculating rooks at their nests cawed, 
And saw from elm-tops, delicate as a flower of grass, 
What we below could not see, Winter pass.

by Emily Dickinson

The Face in evanescence lain

 The Face in evanescence lain
Is more distinct than ours --
And ours surrendered for its sake
As Capsules are for Flower's --
Or is it the confiding sheen
Dissenting to enamor us
Of Detriment divine?

by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe


 A FAIR bell-flower

Sprang tip from the ground;
And early its fragrance

It shed all around;
A bee came thither

And sipp'd from its bell;
That they for each other

Were made, we see well.
