The Healing Powers of Flowers

by Charlotte Fiske Bates

Although the heart is very sore from loss,
  Yet there are healing powers;
It eases much the burden of a cross
  To cover it with flowers.
Faith, hope, and love — the blossoms of the three
  Help heal the hurt of our humanity.





Today is the birthday of the American writer and poet Charlotte Fiske Bates, who was born on November 30, 1838.

Many of her poems were about gardens or incorporated garden imagery.
