Weeds
 
  To win the secret of a weed’s plain heart.
Lowell.    
  1
  Call us not weeds, we are flowers of the sea.
E. L. Aveline.    
  2
        The summer’s flower is to the summer sweet,
  Though to itself it only live and die,
But if that flower with base infection meet,
  The basest weed outbraves his dignity;
For sweetest things turn sourest by their deeds;
Lilies that fester smell far worse than weeds.
Shakespeare.    
  3
                    I will go root away
The noisome weeds which without profit suck
The soil’s fertility from wholesome flowers.
Shakespeare.    
  4
        Now ’tis the spring, and weeds are shallow-rooted;
Suffer them now, and they’ll o’ergrow the garden,
And choke the herbs for want of husbandry.
Shakespeare.    
  5
        In the deep shadow of the porch
  A slender bind-weed springs,
And climbs, like airy acrobat,
  The trellises, and swings
And dances in the golden sun
  In fairy loops and rings.
Susan Coolidge.
