Temple with Flowers

The temple is one of the romantic icons related to the theme of love. Inside, there's an illustration of a man declaring his love to a woman in a beautiful sylvan landscape.

“The sunbeam, after gentle showers,

Is not more loved by drooping flowers,

Within their noontide shady bowers,

Than thou art loved by me, love.”

George C. Whitney
