The squalling cat and the squeaking mouse,Robert Louis Stevenson, from "The Moon," A Child's Garden of Verses

It began with orange tulips, one blowing day when my gray coat became too much to bear. Additional tulips followed. Outside, the pink magnolias called me up into their branches one misty evening, keeping me a secret from those below; my feet dangled high, then higher over the fallen petals, the slick mud. The last of the paperwhites reeded their way up. The daffodils whistled butter and orange. And now it is lilacs, cones of mirth and scent. Bought and received and lining. every. surface.
