  • A eutopia is a perfect place. It differs from a utopia in that it's not fictional.

    Also the title of a poem by Francis Turner Palgrave:

    There is a garden where lilies
     And roses are side by side;
    And all day between them in silence
     The silken butterflies glide.

    I may not enter the garden,
     Though I know the road thereto;
    And morn by morn to the gateway
     I see the children go.

    They bring back light on their faces;
     But they cannot bring back to me
    What the lilies say to the roses,
     Or the songs of the butterflies be.

    (from Poet's Corner)
