One swallow cannot make me
Nor the gentian blue,
But see a rose and you will know
That I am good and true*

I find it pretty hard to write about flowers. I love their shapes, their colours, their variations, their deceptive simplicity. There must be a way of working this into prose without it becoming too… prosaic?
