SNOWDROPS
[ Also see Flowers Plants ]

At the head of Flora's dance;
  Simple Snow-drop, then in thee
    All thy sister-train I see;
      Every brilliant bud that blows,
        From the blue-bell to the rose;
          All the beauties that appear,
            On the bosom of the Year,
              All that wreathe the locks of Spring,
                Summer's ardent breath perfume,
                  Or on the lap of Autumn bloom,
                    All to thee their tribute bring.
      - James Montgomery, Snow-Drop

The morning star of flowers.
      - James Montgomery, Snow-Drop

Lone Flower, hemmed in with snows and white as they
  But hardier far, once more I see thee bend
    Thy forehead, as if fearful to offend,
      Like an unbidden guest. Though day by day,
        Storms, sallying from the mountain tops, waylay
          The rising sun, and on the plains descend;
            Yet art thou welcome, welcome as a friend
              Whose zeal outruns his promise!
      - William Wordsworth, To a Snow-Drop

Nor will I then thy modest grace forget,
  Chaste Snow-drop, venturous harbinger of Spring,
    And pensive monitor of fleeting years!
      - William Wordsworth, To a Snow-Drop
