COLUMBINES
[ Also see Flowers Plants ]

Of columbines, in purple dressed
  Nod o'er the ground-bird's hidden nest.
      - William Cullen Bryant,
        To the Fringed Gentian

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!
      - Elaine Goodale (Mrs. Charles A. Eastman),
        Columbine

O columbine, open your folded wrapper,
  Where two twin turtle-doves dwell!
    O cuckoopint, toll me the purple clapper
      That hangs in your clear green bell!
      - Jean Ingelow,
        Songs of Seven--Seven Times One

There's fennel for you, and columbines.
  There's rue for you, and here's some for me.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Ophelia at IV, v)

I am that flower--That mint. That columbine.
      - William Shakespeare, Love's Labor's Lost
         (Armado & Dumaine & Longaville at V, ii)
