During these trying n turbulent times, The Artist & The Writer know how important it is to have a strong support system. Sure, the Queen is the greatest woman on the planet, and the Princess is heaven-sent.. but here, we would like pay a special tribute to "The Others".
Each flower & colour represents it's 'Princess'.
"The Rose has but a summer reign,
The Daisy never dies"...
- James Montgomery, The Daisy
A charming daisy for the lively Crown Princess
"A purple hibiscus : rare, fragrant and with the undertones of freedom, a different kind of freedom from the one the crowds waving green leaves."
- Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Purple Hibiscus
A delicate hibiscus for the passionate Duchess
Your lips are like a Southern lily red,
Wet with the soft rain-kisses of the night,
In which the brown bee buries deep its head,
When still the dawn's a silver sea of light.
Your lips betray the secret of your soul,
The dark delicious essence that is you,
A mystery of life, the flaming goal,
I seek through mazy pathways strange and new.
Your lips are the red symbol of a dream,
What vision of warm lilies they impart,
That line the green bank of fair blue stream,
With butterflies and bees close to each heart.
Brown bees that murmur sounds of music rare,
That softly fall upon the languorous breeze,
Wafting them gently on the quiet air,
Among untended avenues of trees.
O were I hovering, a bee, to probe,
Deep down within your scented heart, fair flower,
Enfolded by your soft vermilion robe,
Amorous of sweets, for but one perfect hour.
- Claude Mc Kay, The Red Flower
An exotic cala lily for the romantic Baroness
No, the heart that has truly loved never forgets,
But as truly loves on to the close,
As the sunflower turns on her god when he sets,
The same look which she turned when he rose!
- Sir Thomas Moore, Believe Me If All Those Endearing Young Charms
A warm sunflower for the loving Countess
