THORN
[ Also see Flowers Plants Trees ]

Beneath the milk-white thorn that scents the evening pale.
      - Robert Burns, The Cotter's Saturday Night
         (st. 9)

There is a Thorn,--it looks so old,
  In truth, you'd find it hard to say
    How it could ever have been young,
      It looks so old and gray.
        Not higher than a two years child
          It stands erect, this aged Thorn;
            No leaves it has, no prickly points;
              It is a mass of knotted joints,
                A wretched thing forlorn.
                  It stands erect, and like a stone
                    With lichens is it overgrown.
      - William Wordsworth, The Thorn
