An exquisite invention this, Worthy of Love's most honeyed kiss, This art of writing billet-doux In buds, and odors, and bright hues! In saying all one feels and thinks In clever daffodils and pinks; In puns of tulips; and in phrases, Charming for their truth, of daisies.
When one with honeyed words but evil mind Persuades the mob, great woes befall the state.Euripides
And soft adorings from their loves receive Upon the honeyed middle of the night.john keats
Ye valleys low where the mild whispers use, Of shades and wanton winds, and gushing brooks, On whose fresh lap the swart star sparely looks, Throw hither all your quaint enameled eyes, That on the green turf such the honeyed showers, And purple all the ground with vernal flowers.john milton
Pansies in soft April rains Fill their stalks with honeyed sap Drawn from Earth's prolific lap.bayard taylor
