CEDAR
[ Also see Trees ]

O'er yon bare knoll the pointed cedar shadows
  Drowse on the crisp, gray moss.
      - James Russell Lowell,
        An Indian-Summer Reverie

Thus yields the cedar to the axe's edge,
  Whose arms gave shelter to the princely eagle,
    Under whose shade the ramping lion slept,
      Whose top-branch overpeered Jove's spreading tree
        And kept low shrubs from winter's powerful wind.
      - William Shakespeare,
        King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (Warwick at V, ii)

High on a hill a goodly Cedar grewe,
  Of wond'rous length and streight proportion,
    That farre abroad her daintie odours threwe;
      'Mongst all the daughters of proud Libanon,
        Her match in beautie was not anie one.
      - Edmund Spenser,
        Visions of the World's Vanitie (st. 7)
