Thoreau for your Sunday…

And the water-lily floats on the smooth surface of slow waters ,amid rounded shields of leaves,bucklers,red beneath,which simulate a green field,perfuming the air…How transitory the perfect beauty of the rose and the lily!..The lily is perhaps the only flower which all are eager to pluck…June 26,1852
