The Amen of Nature

They grew in a pretty secluded area between the old and new buildings in Yale University campus. Rows upon rows of little white  flowers that sparkled under the sun. They were like little stars stemming from a fragile stalk. When I saw the many flowers that bloomed, I felt as I was in a dreamlike metaphor among fairies from a story book.

“The Amen of nature is always a flower.”

Oliver Wendell Holmes
