Poets down the ages celebrate the immortal beauty of flowers in verse. Fragile, lovely and perfumed, so easily bruised and so quick to die, flowers appear to assuage our craving for beauty. Here is Alfred Lord Tennyson's Passion-Flower, Red and White Rose, Larkspur Lily as a lover waits for his late arriving partner, a poem called Lotus which begins "From groves of spice o'er fields of rice, Athwart the lotus-stream, I bring for you, aglint with dew a little lovely dream." Poppy, violet, carnation tulip, white and yellow jasmine, the orchid and sweet peas are among the 17 verses with beautiful colour botanical illustrations on some of the left hand pages of this 125 page lined journal with small decorations on the bottom right hand corner and white satin pagemarker. 5½" x 8½".
