Thread Name: Lyr Req: Pretty Little Pink
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Pretty Little Pink
I don't know if there's any trail to follow via 'pink'. I've always assumed (and I think I'm correct in thinking) that this refers to the flower, 'the pink', as in 'clove pink'. This article is interesting and refers to it as a medieval flower, so perhaps that's the poetry which should be searched?
