Lovely lilies

And why take ye thought for raiment?
Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
And yet I say unto you, that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

~ The Bible, Matthew (ch. VII, v. 28-29)

Gracious as sunshine, sweet as dew
Shut in a lily’s golden core.

Flowers…are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty outvalues all the utilities of the world.

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1844
