What is grass?

What is the grass?
I guess it is the handkerchief
of the Lord,
A scented gift and remembrance
designedly dropt,
Bearing the owner’s name
some way in the corner,
that we may see and remark,
and say Whose?

–Walt Whitman
(1819 – 1892)

Intended for joy

There is not one blade of grass,
there is no color in this world
that is not intended
to make us rejoice.

–John Calvin
(1509 – 1564)
