"Weeds are flowers too...

"Weeds are flowers too, once you get to know them"
A. A. Milne, Eeyore from Winnie the Pooh



by Alfred, Lord Tennyson 

Once in a golden hour 
I cast to earth a seed. 
Up there came a flower, 
The people said, a weed. 
 To and fro they went 
Thro' my garden-bower, 
And muttering discontent 
Cursed me and my flower. 
 Then it grew so tall 
It wore a crown of light, 
But thieves from o'er the wall 
Stole the seed by night. 
 Sow'd it far and wide 
By every town and tower, 
Till all the people cried
`Splendid is the flower.' 
 Read my little fable: 
He that runs may read. 
Most can raise the flowers now, 
For all have got the seed. 
 And some are pretty enough, 
And some are poor indeed; 
And now again the people 
Call it but a weed.
