HAWTHORN
[ Also see Trees ]

The hawthorn-trees blow in the dew of the morning.
      - Robert Burns, Chevalier's Lament

The hawthorn I will pu' wi' its lock o' siller gray,
  Where, like an aged man, it stands at break o' day.
      - Robert Burns, O Luve Will Venture In

Yet, all beneath the unrivall'd rose,
  The lowly daisy sweetly blows;
    Tho' large the forest's monarch throws
      His army shade,
        Yet green the juicy hawthorn grows,
          Adown the glade.
      - Robert Burns, Vision (duan II, st. 21)

Yet walk with me where hawthorns hide
  The wonders of the lane.
      - Ebenezer Elliott ("The Corn Law Rhymer"),
        The Wonders of the Lane (l. 3)

The hawthorn-brush, with seats beneath the shade
  For talking age and whispering lovers made!
      - Oliver Goldsmith, The Deserted Village
         (l. 13)

And every shepherd tells his tale
  Under the hawthorn in the dale.
      - John Milton, L'Allegro (l. 67)

Then sing by turns, by turns the Muses sing;
  Now hawthorns blossom.
      - Alexander Pope, Spring (l. 41)

Gives not the hawthorn-bush a sweeter shade
  To shepherds looking on their silly sheep
    Than doth a rich embroidered canopy
      To kings that fear their subjects' treachery?
      - William Shakespeare,
        King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (King Henry at II, v)

In hawthorne-time the heart grows light.
      - Algernon Charles Swinburne, Tale of Balen
         (I)

The Hawthorn whitens; and the juicy Groves
  Put forth their buds, unfolding by degrees,
    Till the whole leafy Forest stands displayed,
      In full luxuriance, to the sighing gales.
      - James Thomson (1), Seasons--Spring
