Wayside Flower

There is an irish poem that tells us to “spare the wayside flower, it is the travellers dower”.
Meaning, don’t pick the wayside flower … leave it for others to pass by, to see, to enjoy, and to learn something from about life and beauty.

Tennessee Williams once wrote, “The violets in the mountains have broken the rocks.”

I wonder if he had seen this image, whether he might not have said instead, “The wayside flowers have torn down the fences.”
