The Modest Blossom

The "modest" Violet Blossom
For this picture of a Violet Flower, I think I've found a poem which pretty much describes it:

The Violet
by Jane Taylor

Down in a green and shady bed
A modest violet grew,
It's stalk was bent, it hung it's head,
As if to hide from view.

And yet it was a lovely flower,
It's color bright and fair;
It might have graced a rosy bower
Instead of hiding there.

Yet there it was content to bloom,
In modest tints arrayed;
And there diffused it's sweet perfume,
Withing the silent shade.

Then let me to the valley go,
This pretty flower to see;
That I may also learn to grow
In sweet humility.
