qroqqa commented on the word bridget-in-her-bravery
He has been in England as long as dove and daw,
Calling the wild cherry tree the merry tree,
The rose campion Bridget-in-her-bravery;
And in a tender mood he, as I guess,
Christened one flower Love-in-idleness,
And while he walked from Exeter to Leeds
One April called all cuckoo-flowers Milkmaids.
—Edward Thomas, 'Lob'

sionnach commented on the word bridget-in-her-bravery
Bridget's in her bravery, love is in idleness;
Patrick's in the pub, the pelican is in her vuln.
All is right with the world.
--- Reynard Fox, 'Hob'.
