It’s Wildflower Week in New York City. (Who knew?) Apparently, it runs through the 19th and there are over 30 events highlighting the beauties throughout all five boroughs.
To celebrate, here’s a lovely poem, “The Wild Flower’s Song,” penned by William Blake (1757-1827):
As I wander’d the forest,
The green leaves among,
I heard a wild flower Singing a song.
I slept in the Earth In the silent night,
I murmur’d my fears
And I felt delight.
In the morning I went
As rosy as morn,
To seek for new joy;
But O! met with scorn.
So to celebrate this week, be sure to bring some flowers to someone you love.
