Pea, Sweet (Lathyrus Odoratus)
The pea is but a wanton witch
In too much haste to wed,
And clasps her rings on every hand.
Here are sweet peas, on tiptoe for a flight;
With wings of gentle flush o’er delicate white,
And taper fingers catching at all things,
To bind them all about with tiny rings.
        Keats—I Stood Tiptoe Upon a Little Hill.
