this poem says that if you love a person, you can't replace it, it shows
when violet rejects when lily offers the guy's brother, obviously lily is
being blunt and stupid. violet likes the guy, but the guy likes lily. this
poem shows the complexity of love. lilies are also very much bigger than
violets by size and have more fragrance than violets, which may mean that

This poem is about how we, as humans, approach love. How we look at looks

i keep reading this poem, and at first, it seems like lily just has a rose,
and that's it. but the more i read it and think about it, i realize that a
