Excerpt from The Language of Flowers: With an Introduction
Long did Love brood over the new language which he had discovered, and many a day did he sit pondering to himself, as if hesitating whether or not he should trust Woman with the secret. She is already armed with beaut... y, reasoned Love, as he sat with his elbow pil lowed on a bed of ¿owers there is a language in her eyes, and a sweet music in her voice, and shall I now teach her to converse through ¿owers - to give a tongue to the rose, and a voice to the lily, and hang upon the honeysuckle words of love, and turn every blossom she gathers into the language of affection? No: I will again ¿y abroad, and dropping a bud here and a bell there, see to what purpose she turneth these beautiful secrets. I will but at first teach her a few letters in this new Alphabet of Love.
