    'A flower was offered to me, 
    Such a flower as May never bore; 
    But I said 'I've a pretty rose tree,' 
    And I passed the sweet flower o'er. 

    Then I went to my pretty rose tree, 
    To tend her by day and by night; 
    But my rose turned away with jealousy, 
    And her thorns were my only delight.'
    - William Blake

    'Flapping your multi-colorful, soft wings 
    Dividing some gentle, whispering winds 

    O, butterfly! Heavenly butterfly! ! 
    You do not fly towards the far blue sky, 

    But sit on fragrant petals of flower 
    For kissing and drinking luscious nectar.'
    - Muzahidul Reza

    in a bud
    was more painful

    it took
    to blossom.'
