A blossom of returning light,
An April flower of sun and dew;
The earth and sky, the day and night
Are melted in her depth of blue!
~ Dora Read Goodale, Blue Violets
Violet, violet, sparkling with dew,
Down in the meadow land, wild where you grew,
How did you come by the beautiful blue
With which your soft petals unfold?
~ Hannah F. Gould
A violet by a mossy stone
Half hidden from the eye;
Fair as a star, when only one
Is shining in the sky.
~ William Wordsworth
