Fresh neroli orange flowers and heliotrope blossoms pressed between the delicate paper pages of a leather-bound book.

"And all I love is here : old books, fresh flowers.

My books are tombs where wit and wisdom sleep,

Stored full with treasure of the long ago ;
My tender buds, that dews of springtide steep.

Like shining mirrors of the future show.
The present is so sad ! . . . . this dark to-day

Like skies with thunder charged above us lowers :
Ah ! of the past — the future — speak always.

Tell me of naught but these .... old books, fresh

-- Graham R. Tomson (Rosamund Marriott Watson)
