"Flower...born to blush unseen"

“ Full many a flower is born to blush unseen
And waste its sweetness on the desert air"
 
“Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard”  Thomas Gray
 
While working in the garden this afternoon I came across these crocuses hidden from view and I thought of Thomas Gray’s  poem.
 

It is also a metaphor for folk who do heroic things that are never reported in the news or recorded in history.
