Flower Children

Ah, spring is in the air!
The daffodils are showing their smiling faces.

Instead of a quote, how about an illustrated poem?

From a lovely old book, Flower Children: The Little Cousins of The Field and Garden, by Elizabeth Gordon with drawings by M.T. Ross. Copyright 1910, 82nd edition, inscribed "Christmas 1945," given to my mother.  Love this part of the foreword:

"God has implanted in the breasts of children a natural love for flowers—and no one who keeps that love in his heart has entirely forsaken the land of childhood."
