Epigram on a Luxurious Ivy Plant

Epigram on a luxurious ivy plant

-To Aristotle the Stagirite

With delicate leaves full of green sunlight,

An ivy plant grows and flows in warm delight.

In a window, facing the morning sun,

It unfurls its moistened leaves all one by one,

Holding the moisture of now departed night,

In which is drawn a brighter inflected light.

And thus does sensuous nature grow:

Growing as nature’s pleasure shows.
