“…Wood-sorrel, and the varnish'd buttercup;
And primrose in its purfled green swathed up, ...
O cistern deep of that harmonious rillet,
And these fair juicy stems that climb and throng
The vernal world, and unexhausted seas
Of flowing life, and soul that asks to fill it,
Each and all of these,--and more, and more than these!”
- From ‘In A Spring Grove’ by William Allingham (1824-1889)
