The seasons send their ruin as they go,
For in the spring the narciss shows its head
Nor withers till the rose has flamed to red,
And in the autumn purple violets blow,
And the slim crocus stirs the winter snow
(Desespoir, Oscar Wilde)
Hug me hard, and kiss me slow
Take me to the place where lupins grow
Paint my feelings violet, purple, pink and blue
Flush my lips with morning dew…
Purple is a color,
a mix of blue and red,
Purple is my teddy-bear,
sitting on my bed.
Purple is a violet,
growing in the spring,
Purple is an amethyst,
sparkling in a ring.
The forward violet thus did I chide:
‘Sweet thief, whence didst thou steal thy sweet that smells,
If not from my love’s breath? The purple pride
Which on thy soft cheek for complexion dwells
In my love’s veins thou hast too grossly dyed.
The lily I condemned for thy hand,
And buds of marjoram had stol’n thy hair;
The roses fearfully on thorns did stand,
One blushing shame, another white despair;
A third, nor red nor white, had stol’n of both,
And to his robb’ry had annexed thy breath,
But for his theft in pride of all his growth
A vengeful canker eat him up to death.
More flowers I noted, yet I none could see
But sweet or colour it had stol’n from thee.
William Shakespeare, sonnet xcix
