The Violet Comments

Rating: 3.0
Down in a green and shady bed,
A modest violet grew;
Its stalk was bent, it hung its head
As if to hide from view.

Violets were once a popular symbol of sapphic love. I don't know if that has anything to do with this poem, but it's interesting to think how this information could change the meaning of the poem, no?

Bliss Beauty Flowers In Settings Wild if I were a master florist seeking out a bloom perfect flowers with flawed bent heads would get a peep not swift into dustbin discarded go not one customer wept alas not a single soul to shed tears for flowers to early tomb sent but unless your florists a flower with a bend stem that hangs its head which still looks beautiful smells like sweet perfume is still a precious rare joy to behold in wild settings Copyright © Terence George Craddock Inspired by the poem 'The Violet' by Jane Taylor.

The moral of the poem could be, unless your a florist, a flower with a bend stem that hangs its head, which still looks beautiful and smells like sweet perfume, is still a precious joy to behold in the wild.

A very prettily written poem, almost as humble as its topic.

i really like this poem. the everitt middle school girl's choir (7th & 8th graders) are singing 'The Violet' for our concert and it is just beautiful. my teacher's name is Ms. Edewaard and she works really hard to keep the class singing. she sometimes gets on everyone's nerves, but overall, she okay! ! !
