Informative, but not convincing. Something is missing but what I can not
understand. But I will say frankly: bright and benevolent thoughts!....

however, violets are also the flower of mourning, so perhaps it's fitting
for them to sorrowfully inform men that until we give up our petty
squabbles, people will continue to die. then, in a cynical view of
mankind, crane implicitly has the people remove the violets so that they
wouldn't have to hear their accusations.

Crane's signature cynical irony comes into play here with his choice of
flower: in the Victorian flower-language, the violet stood for maidenly
modesty and faithfulness. In a sense, then, Crane is exposing the women's
devotion to their lovers as jealousy, not true faithfulness, and thus as
undeserving of the violets.
