Like a blue and magic dream,
Blue water, light and air
Flow among them there.

Bluebells up in basketfuls
When she gets them home will find
The magic left behind. (Eleanor Farjeon)

(Lisa Kleypas)

It’s good to suddenly come out of this quiet half-darkness to a bright clearing, everything is different at once — and the warm earth, and the smell of juniper warmed by the sun, and the mobility of the air, and drooping large bells cast from purple metal… (Vasily Grossman)

And I wave to the garden gate
Wake me up
when the bluebells are ringing. (Patrick Wolf)

The flower that’s like thy face, pale primrose, nor
The azured harebell, like thy veins. (William Shakespeare)

And soothing words are breathed by thee. (Emily Brontë)

On the day of cheerful May,
Among the uncut grass
Shaking your head? (Alexei Tolstoy)

Such being the case, few gardens should be without at least the finer forms of the large Bluebell. (John Wood)

Its blossoms have the mightiest power
To soothe my spirit’s care. (Charlotte, Emily and Anne Brontë)

(Vincent van Gogh)

Happiness and bluebells

Happiness, like life itself, was as fragile as a bird’s heartbeat, as fleeting as the bluebells in the wood, but while it lasted. (Kate Atkinson)

Had never a thought to be sad,
But meandered in joy through the meadows,
With bluebell and columbine clad. (Alfred Castner King)

Full of a secret that thou dar’st not tell! (George MacDonald)
