MRS. SARAH HELEN POWER WHITMAN
American poet and critic
(1803 - 1878)

A love-tint flushes the wind-flower's cheek,
  Rich melodies gush from the violet's beak,
    On the rifts of the rock, the wild columbines grow,
      Their heavy honey-cups bending low.
      - [Flowers]

Here oft we sought the violet, as it lay
  Buried in beds of moss and lichens gray.
      - [Violets]

When summer gathers up her robes of glory, and like a dream of beauty glides away.
      - [Autumn]

The aster greets us as we pass
  With her faint smile.
      - A Day of the Indian Summer (l. 35)
        [Asters]

Beside the brook and on the umbered meadow,
  Where yellow fern-tufts fleck the faded ground,
    With folded lids beneath their palmy shadow
      The gentian nods in dewy slumbers bound.
      - A Still Day in Autumn (st. 6) [Gentians]

The fair azalea bows
  Beneath its snowy crest.
      - She Blooms no More [Azaleas]

The summer skies are darkly blue,
  The days are still and bright,
    And Evening trails her robes of gold
      Through the dim halls of Night.
      - Summer's Call [Night]

The shy little Mayflower weaves her nest,
  But the south wind sighs o'er the fragment loam,
    And betrays the path to her woodland home.
      - The Waking of the Heart [Arbutus]

Banks that slope to the southern sky
  Where languid violets love to lie.
      - Wood Walks in Spring (l. 11) [Violets]
