Here you will find the Poem No Violets of poet Stephen Maria Crane

No Violets

There was a land where lived no violets. 
A traveller at once demanded : 'Why?' 
The people told him: 
'Once the violets of this place spoke thus: 
'Until some woman freely gives her lover 
To another woman 
We will fight in bloody scuffle.'' 
Sadly the people added: 
'There are no violets here.'
