...you defend yourself. If it was there, Where is it now, the Yellow Lady's Slipper?" "Well, wait--it's common--it's too common." "Common? The Purple Lady's Slipper's commoner." "I didn't bring a Purple Lady's Slipper To You--to you I mean--they're both too common." The lawyer gave a laugh among his papers As if with some idea that she had scored. "I've broken Anne of gathering bouquets. It's not fair to the child. It can't be helped though:Pressed into service means pressed out of shape.Somehow I'll make it right with her--she'll see. She's going to do my scouting in the field, Over stone walls and all along a wood And by a river bank for water flowers, The floating Heart, with small leaf like a heart, And at the sinus under water a fist Of little fingers all kept down but one, And that thrust up to blossom in the sun As if to say, 'You! You're the Heart's desire.' Anne has a way with flowers to take the place Of that... Frost, Robert
