It Is Not a Word

It is not a word spoken,
Few words are said;
Nor even a look of the eyes
Nor a bend of the head,

But only a hush of the heart
That has too much to keep,
Only memories waking
That sleep so light a sleep. 

-Sarah Teasdale

Flower in the Crannied Wall

Flower in the crannied wall, 
I pluck you out of the crannies, 
I hold you here, root and all, in my hand, 
Little flower-but if I could understand 
What you are, root and all, all in all, 
I should know what God and man is. 

- Alfred Lord Tennyson

Quote - W.S.

"The robbed that smiles, steals something from the thief."

Equal To The Moon

It is not the heart that encloses the beloved,
but the beloved that fills the void of the heart.

The flower, too, opens its loveliness
on the Earth that is itself in bloom.

Let us wish we may be equal to the moon,
that all the light we receive we give away;

or in being equal, we are one with love
in flowing ceaselessly again into the world.

-Jé Maverick
