ELAINE GOODALE (MRS. CHARLES A. EASTMAN)
American poet
(1863 - 1953)

Thy subtle charm is strangely given,
  My fancy will not let thee be,--
    Then poise not thus 'twixt earth and heaven,
      O white anemone!
      - Anemone [Anemones]

Skirting the rocks at the forest edge
  With a running flame from ledge to ledge,
    Or swaying deeper in shadowy glooms,
      A smoldering fire in her dusky blooms;
        Bronzed and molded by wind and sun,
          Maddening, gladdening every one
            With a gypsy beauty full and fine,--
              A health to the crimson columbine!
      - Columbine [Columbines]

Nature lies disheveled, pale,
  With her feverish lips apart,--
    Day by day the pulses fail,
      Nearer to her bounding heart;
        Yet that slackened grasp doth hold
          Store of pure and genuine gold;
            Quick thou comest, strong and free,
              Type of all the wealth to be,--
                Goldenrod!
      - Goldenrod [Goldenrods]

Death in the wood,--
  In the death-pale lips apart;
    Death in a whiteness that curdled the blood,
      Now black to the very heart:
        The wonder by her was formed
          Who stands supreme in power;
            To show that life by the spirit comes
              She gave up a soulless flower!
      - Indian Pipe (st. 4) [Indian Pipes]

With careless joy we thread the woodland ways
  And reach her broad domain.
    Thro' sense of strength and beauty, free as air.
      We feel our savage kin,--
        And thus alone with conscious meaning wear
          The Indian's moccasin!
      - Moccasin Flower [Moccasin Flowers]

The seal and guerdon of wealth untold
  We clasp in the wild marsh marigold.
      - Nature's Coinage [Marsh Marigolds]

Pure and perfect, sweet arbutus
  Twines her rosy-tinted wreath.
      - The First Flowers [Arbutus]

The starry, fragile windflower,
  Poised above in airy grace,
    Virgin white, suffused with blushes,
      Shyly droops her lovely face.
      - The First Flowers [Windflowers]
