HOLLY
[ Also see Plants ]

Green, slender, leaf-clad holly boughs
  Were twisted gracefu' round her brows,
    I took her for some Scottish Muse,
      By that same token,
        An' come to stop those reckless vows,
          Would soon be broken.
      - Robert Burns, The Vision (duan I, st. 9)

Those holies of themselves a shape
  As of an arbor took.
      - Samuel Taylor Coleridge, The Three Graves
         (pt. IV, st. 24)

All green was vanished save of pine and yew,
  That still displayed their melancholy hue;
    Save the green holly with its berries red,
      And the green moss that o'er the gravel spread.
      - George Crabbe, Tale of the Hall

And as, when all the summer trees are seen
  So bright and green,
    The Holly leaves a sober hue display
      Less bright than they,
        But when the bare and wintry woods we see,
          What then so cheerful as the Holly-tree?
      - Robert Southey, The Holly-Tree

O Reader! hast thou ever stood to see
  The Holly-tree?
    The eye that contemplates it well perceives
      Its glossy leaves
        Ordered by an Intelligence so wise
          As might confound the Atheist's sophistries.
      - Robert Southey, The Holly-Tree (st. 1)
