AMARANTHS
[ Also see Flowers Plants ]

Nosegays! leave them for the waking,
  Throw them earthward where they grew
    Dim are such, beside the breaking
      Amaranths he looks unto.
        Folded eyes see brighter colors than the open ever do.
      - Elizabeth Barrett Browning, A Child Asleep

Bid amaranthus all his beauty shed,
  And daffodillies fill their cups with tears,
    To strew the laureate to hearse when Lycid lies.
      - John Milton, Lycidas (l. 149)

Immortal amaranth, a flower which once
  In Paradise, fast by the Tree of Life,
    Began to bloom, but soon for Man's offence,
      To heav'n remov'd, where it first grew, there grows,
        And flow'rs aloft shading the fount of life.
      - John Milton, Paradise Lost
         (bk. III, l. 353)

Amaranths such as crown the maids
  That wander through Zamara's shades.
      - Thomas Moore,
        Lalla Rookh--Light of the Harem (l. 318)
