Yvone Ænsus

In happier beauty; more pellucid streams -
An ampler ether - a diviner air,
And fields invested with purpureal gleams

biomorphosis:

The name Hippopotamus comes from the Ancient Greek ‘river horse’. They can sleep underwater and will automatically rise and breathe without waking. They are only territorial while in the water and the reproduction and birth occur in the water. 
Hippos bask on the shoreline and secrete an oily red substance, which gave rise to the myth that they sweat blood. The liquid is actually a skin moistener and sunblock that may also provide protection against germs. They are  one of the most aggressive creatures in the world, although they look chubby, they can easily outrun a human.

Consider the Lilies of the Field

Flowers preach to us if we will hear:—
The rose saith in the dewy morn:
I am most fair;
Yet all my loveliness is born
Upon a thorn.
The poppy saith amid the corn:
Let but my scarlet head appear
And I am held in scorn;
Yet juice of subtle virtue lies
Within my cup of curious dyes.
The lilies say: Behold how we
Preach without words of purity.
The violets whisper from the shade
Which their own leaves have made:
Men scent our fragrance on the air,
Yet take no heed
Of humble lessons we would read.
But not alone the fairest flowers:
The merest grass
Along the roadside where we pass,
Lichen and moss and sturdy weed,
Tell of His love who sends the dew,
The rain and sunshine too,
To nourish one small seed.
-Christina Rossetti
