From Wikiquote

But who can paint

Like Nature? Can imagination boast,

Amidst its gay creation, hues like hers?

Or can it mix them with that matchless skill,

And lose them in each other, as appears

In each attractive plant that sucks and swells

This juicy tide, a twining mass of tubes:

—From Gifford, I. 1853. The Marine Botanist; an Introduction to the study... Brighton, London.
