"O the green things growing, the green things growing,
The faint sweet smell of the green things growing!
I should like to live, whether I smile or grieve,
Just to watch the happy life of my green things growing."
- Dinah Maria Mulock Craik -
Dinah Maria Mulock Craik (1826-1887) was an English novelist and poet. She died of heart failure at the age of 61 while preparing for her daughter's wedding. Reportedly, her last words were, "Oh, if I could live four weeks longer! but no matter, no matter!"
