Emily Dickinson did it. It is considered the lowliest of art-like activities, only practiced by spinsters and faeries. In this case the flowers are "pressed" into serving as new content in a post-nature constellation of beauty and longing. In the face of unavoidable decay, they have an elegiac function to perform still, their loveliness a balm for the bitter pills we swallow.     Catherine Howe
