Friday Flowers: Fall Crocus

Posted Oct 22 2008 6:13pm
autumn crocus, naked lady, meadow saffron

This lovely fall surprise blooms
after the plant's leaves have withered away.

Its spring-like beauty is in contrast to the
autumn reds, oranges and golds of our trees and shrubs.
We all have met people who still bloom
like a fresh spring flower as they get older.
This poem by Robert Browning inspired
a song with a similar title by John Lennon.
And the fall crocus illustrates both poems beautifully.

Grow Old along with Me

Robert Browning

Grow old along with me!
The best is yet to be,

The last of life, for which the first was made:
Our times are in His hand
Who saith "A whole I planned,
Youth shows but half;
trust God: see all, nor be afraid!"


Grow Old With Me

John Lennon

Grow old along with me
The best is yet to be
When our time has come
We will be as one
God bless our love
God bless our love

Grow old along with me
Two branches of one tree
Face the setting sun
When the day is done
God bless our love
God bless our love


Spending our lives together
Man and wife together
World without end
World without end

Grow old along with me
Whatever fate decrees
We will see it through
For our love is true
God bless our love
God bless our love
