GENTIANS
[ Also see Flowers Plants ]

And the blue gentian-flower, that, in the breeze,
  Nods lonely, of her beauteous race the last.
      - William Cullen Bryant, November

Thou blossom! bright with autumn dew,
  And colour's with the heaven's own blue,
    That openest when the quiet light
      Succeeds the keen and frosty night.
      - William Cullen Bryant,
        To the Fringed Gentian

Blue thou art, intensely blue;
  Flower, whence came thy dazzling hue?
      - James Montgomery, The Gentianella

Beside the brook and on the umbered meadow,
  Where yellow fern-tufts fleck the faded ground,
    With folded lids beneath their palmy shadow
      The gentian nods in dewy slumbers bound.
      - Mrs. Sarah Helen Power Whitman,
        A Still Day in Autumn (st. 6)
