But flowers always have it — poise, completion, fulfillment, perfection; I only occasionally, like that moment. For that moment I and the sweet peas had an understanding. (Anne Morrow Lindbergh)

And clasps her rings on every hand. (Thomas Hood)

Up climb’d the sweet pea,
The butterfly of flowers:—I love it not,

Are dyed as if the sunset evening clouds
Had fallen to the earth in sudden rain,
And left their colours: purple, delicate pink,
And snowy white, are on thy wing-like leaves; (Letitia Elizabeth Landon)
