GORSES
[ Also see Flowers Plants ]

Mountain gorses, do ye teach us
  . . . .
    That the wisest word man reaches
      Is the humblest he can speak?
      - Elizabeth Barrett Browning,
        Lessons from the Gorse

Mountain gorses, ever-golden.
  Cankered not the whole year long!
    Do ye teach us to be strong,
      Howsoever pricked and holden
        Like your thorny blooms and so
          Trodden on by rain and snow,
            Up the hillside of this life, as bleak as where ye grow?
      - Elizabeth Barrett Browning,
        Lessons from the Gorse

Love you not, then, to list and hear
  The crackling of the gorse-flower near,
    Pouring an orange-scented tide
      Of fragrance o'er the desert wide?
      - William Howitt, A June Day
