FIR
[ Also see Trees ]

Night hovers all day in the boughs of the fir tree.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson, Experience

A lonely fir-tree is standing
  On a northern barren height;
    It sleeps, and the ice and snow-drift
      Cast round it a garment of white.
      - Heinrich Heine,
        Book of Songs--Lyrical Interlude
         (no. 34)

I remember, I remember
  The fir-trees dark and high;
    I used to think their slender tops
      Were close against the sky.
      - Thomas Hood, I Remember, I Remember

In a drear-nighted December,
  Too happy, happy tree,
    Thy branches ne'er remember
      Their green felicity.
      - John Keats (1), Stanzas

Kindles the gummy bark of fir or pine,
  And sends a comfortable heat from far,
    Which might supply the sun.
      - John Milton, Paradise Lost
         (bk. X, l. 1,076)
