"Every year, in November, at the season that follows the hour of the dead, the crowning and majestic hours of autumn, I go to visit the chrysanthemums ... They are indeed, the most universal, the most diverse of flowers."
Belgian playwright (1862-1949)
"Fair gift of Friendship! and her ever bright and faultless image! welcome now thou art, In thy pure loveliness--thy robes of white,
Speaking a moral to the feeling heart; Unscattered by heats--by wintry blasts unmoved-- Thy strength thus tested--and thy charms improved."
Anna Peyre Dinnies
To a White Chrysanthemum
American poet (1805 - 1886)
