So fair, so sweet

In summer time these paths are edged with flannel flowers. On this walk there was just one left. Other tiny flowers taking their place in their own season.

Words to walk with:
From So Fair, So Sweet, Withal So Sensitive by William Wordsworth
“So fair, so sweet, withal so sensitive,
Would that the little Flowers were born to live,
Conscious of half the pleasure which they give;

That to this mountain-daisy's self were known
The beauty of its star-shaped shadow, thrown
On the smooth surface of this naked stone!”
