PASSION FLOWERS
[ Also see Flowers Plants ]

Art thou a type of beauty, or of power,
  Of sweet enjoyment, or disastrous sin?
    For each thy name denoteth, Passion flower!
      O no! thy pure corolla's depth within
        We trace a holier symbol; yea, a sign
          'Twixt God and man; a record of that hour
            When the expiatory act divine
              Cancelled that curse which was our mortal dower.
                It is the Cross!
      - Sir Aubrey de Vere,
        A Song of Faith--Devout Exercises and Sonnets--The Passion Flower
