Subject - Flowers

Flowers are quite a prolific subject for poets. One poet, Margaret Deland, has nearly an entire volume of poems about flowers.

You may also enjoy the poems about Gardens.

Poetry is the silence and speech between a wet struggling root of a flower and a sunlit blossom of that flower. - Carl Sandburg

The subject indexes are a wonderful way to browse Poets' Corner, leading you to works you might not find any other way. I hope also that they can help the site to seem less overwhelming than it might at first. If you have suggestions or comments about the Subject Indicies please contact Jon Lachelt.

The quotes from Carl Sandburg on the heading of some of the subject pages are from his book of poems, Good Morning America.
