Having a problem with blockquotes...

  1. Can't work out why, maybe it's because I made up this post a little differently than I usually do (but I am pleased with the results). I can't seem to get a blockquote to show at the top, here. I tend to be blockquote-happy but this

      never
    happens.

    I will paste in the entire text here, which includes the invisible quote playing hide-and-seek. I'd give the url for this post but it's scheduled for later this month... :)

    <blockquote>If you would be happy for a lifetime, grow Chrysanthemums. 
    
    ~ Chinese proverb</blockquote>

    <blockquote><p align="center" style="padding-top:14px;padding-bottom:12px;">
    <strong>The Last Chrysanthemum
    </strong></p>
    <p align="center">Why should this flower delay so long
    To show its tremulous plumes?
    Now is the time of plaintive robin-song,
    When flowers are in their tombs.
    </p>
    <p align="center">Through the slow summer, when the sun
    Called to each frond and whorl
    That all he could for flowers was being done,
    Why did it not uncurl?
    </p>
    <p align="center">It must have felt that fervid call
    Although it took no heed,
    Waking but now, when leaves like corpses fall,
    And saps all retrocede.
    </p>
    <p align="center">Too late its beauty, lonely thing,
    The season's shine is spent,
    Nothing remains for it but shivering
    In tempests turbulent.
    </p>
    <p align="center">Had it a reason for delay,
    Dreaming in witlessness
    That for a bloom so delicately gay
    Winter would stay its stress?
    </p>
    <p align="center"> I talk as if the thing were born
    With sense to work its mind;
    Yet it is but one mask of many worn
    By the Great Face behind.
    </p>
