Meaning of flowers by Mrs. Lydia M. Child

How the universal heart of man blesses flowers! - They are wreathed round the cradle, the marriage altar, and the tomb.-They should deck the brow of the youthful bride, for they are in themselves a lovely type of marriage.-They should twine round the tomb, for their perpetually renewed beauty is a symbol of the resurrection.-They should festoon the altar, for their fragrance and beauty ascend in perpetual worship before the most high.
Mrs. Lydia M. Child
