    “Once I spoke the language of the flowers,
    Once I understood each word the caterpillar said,
    Once I smiled in secret at the gossip of the starlings,
    And shared a conversation with the housefly
    in my bed.
    Once I heard and answered all the questions
    of the crickets,
    And joined the crying of each falling dying
    flake of snow,
    Once I spoke the language of the flowers. . . .
    How did it go?
    How did it go?”

    it learned 2 breathe fresh air
    Long live the rose that grew from concrete
    when no one else even cared.”

    “Say she rail; why, I’ll tell her plain
    She sings as sweetly as a nightingale.
    Say that she frown; I’ll say she looks as clear
    As morning roses newly wash’d with dew.
    Say she be mute and will not speak a word;
    Then I’ll commend her volubility,
    and say she uttereth piercing eloquence.”
