My friend Matt Dioguardi...

...lives and teaches in Japan. They have flowers in Japan. Matt likes to take photos of flowers. He attaches a few lines of verse to his flower photos. Most of these lines are old rhyming poems, which make me sort of nervous and irritable. But sometimes, he will attach lines that are swell:

In eastern lands they talk in flowers.
And they tell in a garland their loves and cares.
Each blossom that blooms in their garden bowers
On its leaves a mystic language bears.

~ James Gates Percival
