1631. The Violets
 
By Stephen Crane
 
 
THERE was a land where lived no violets.
A traveller at once demanded: “Why?”
The people told him:
“Once the violets of this place spoke thus:
‘Until some woman freely gives her lover        5
To another woman
We will fight in bloody scuffle.’”
Sadly the people added:
“There are no violets here.”
