PINKS
[ Also see Flowers Plants ]

You take a pink,
  You dig about its roots and water it,
    And so improve it to a garden-pink,
      But will not change it to a heliotrope.
      - Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Aurora Leigh
         (bk. VI)

And I will pu' the pink, the emblem o' my dear,
  For she's the pink o' womankind, and blooms without a peer.
      - Robert Burns, O Luve Will Venture In

The beauteous pink I would not slight,
  Pride of the gardener's leisure.
      - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe,
        The Floweret Wondrous Fair (st. 8),
        (John S. Dwight's translation)
