Petali del fiore by ioannicolae Petali del fiore by ioannicolae
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.


The Flower
by Alfred, Lord Tennyson

the gentle focus, colour and tones in this are special. interesting choice for the shot.. i'm not sure i would have thought to do this.. but i like it a lot. i can't really put my finger on what i like so much about it though, perhaps just the soft romantic feel and tone to it? nice work! :+fav:
