With their coy and dainty graces,
Lure us to their hiding places,
Laugh, O murmuring Spring!
Around the pillars of the palm-tree bower
The orchids cling, in rose and purple spheres;
Shield-broad the lily floats; the aloe flower
Foredates its hundred years.
When two friends understand each other totally, the words are soft and strong like an orchid’s perfume.
~ Martin Luther King Jr
Their words are sweet and strong like the fragrance of orchids.” ― I Ching
