"The rain to the wind said,You push and I'll pelt.'
They so smote the garden bed,That the flowers actually knelt,
And lay lodged--though not dead.
I know how the flowers felt.”~ Robert Frost
"Crushed but yet redolent;
The flowers found the strength, rebelled;
The lessons from the masters dwelled,
Revived; Fragrant; Unquelled; I know how the flowers felt."
"The realism of truth about rain and wind,
Incomparable to the twists the masters refined,
The blessings from heaven overwhelmed; in gratitude knelt,
I know how the flowers felt"~ Shilpa Kapoor
