Or so go some lines by Andrew Marvell (Grateful to anyone who complete the poem).

Who doesn't love a dandelion??

Posted in particular for the benefit of 2010 Shimla Pissup Attendees: the tiny Army Heritage Museum in Annadale.

Some sort of cactus.

Posted in particular for Megs: Anglocana.
(This decoration was found on top of a garbage bin near Oakover last afternoon).

Hey, Revenant! What's the apology for? The newbies learn at the feet of masters. (Said with a smile and genuine humility). Thanks for the link, what a wonderful poem it is.

Now that's what I call green (sorry for the turquoise remark before).
These are beautiful.
The whole poem is 72 lines long. Your quote comes after line 48. It continues as follows:

Here at the fountain's sliding foot,
Or at some fruit tree's mossy root,
Casting the body's vest aside,
My soul into the boughs does glide;
There like a bird it sits and sings,
Then whets, and combs its silver wings;
And, till prepar'd for longer flight,
Waves in its plumes the various light.

Arg! I hate dandelions! I seem to spend most of my weekends getting rid of them from my garden!
