Friday Flowers: More Delightful Dahlias

Dahlia: Parkland Rave

Dead Fires
(By Jessie Redmon Fauset)

If this is peace, this dead and leaden thing,
     Then better far the hateful fret, the sting.
Better the wound forever seeking balm
     Than this gray calm!

Is this pain's surcease? Better far the ache,
     The long-drawn dreary day, the night's white wake,
Better the choking sigh, the sobbing breath
     Than passion's death!

Well, that's an odd poem to match to our pretties today. As promised, we've got some more dahlias for you all. Given our spiky flowers today, I went in search of a passionate and prickly rave. I found a fairly strong match. ;-)

Dahlia: Show 'N' Tell

But we can also find an appropriate vid.

Something to catch a dark, beautiful, sharp aesthetic.

Dahlia: Penhill Dark Monarch

How about this one? "Until She Comes" by the Psychedelic Furs topped the alternative rock charts 20 years ago.
