Lady Gertrude Stein was correct after all;
You cannot define a flower but by itself;
Move over Linnaeus, Darwin, Mendel;
Science is gathering dust in the shelf. 

Wonder the DNA, the code of heredity;
Prosaic, assuming, devoid of caress.
Neither seen nor measured nor certain
To judge the beauty of a patch of roses.

Why, a flowering weed by the roadside,
Or  some lowly vine clinging in the open –
For they bring out the unseen to be seen
As a whole new world of a Lost Garden.
