Beauty in abstract and vibrant color

The Flowers

All the names I know from nurse: 
Gardener's garters, Shepherd's purse, 
Bachelor's buttons, Lady's smock, 
And the Lady Hollyhock.

Fairy places, fairy things, 
Fairy woods where the wild bee wings, 
Tiny trees for tiny dames - 
These must all be fairy names!

Tiny woods below whose boughs 
Shady fairies weave a house; 
Tiny tree-tops, roses or thyme, 
Where the braver fairies climb!

Fair are grown-up people's trees, 
But the fairest woods are these; 
Where if I were not so tall, 
I should live for good and all.

~ Robert Louis Stevenson
