Language of the Flowers

There is a language little known;
Lovers claim it as their own.
Its symbols smile upon the land,
Wrought by Nature’s wondrous hand;
And in their silent beauty, speak
Of life and joy, to those who seek
For love divine and sunny hours,
In the language of the flowers.

(From The Language of Flowers, 1875)
