HONEYSUCKLES
[ Also see Flowers Plants ]

Around in silent grandeur stood
  The stately children of the wood;
    Maple and elm and towering pine
      Mantled in folds of dark woodbine.
      - Julia Caroline Ripley Dorr, At the Gate

I sat me down to watch upon a bank
  With ivy canopied and interwove
    With flaunting honeysuckle.
      - John Milton, Comus (l. 543)

I plucked a honeysuckle where
  The hedge on high is quick with thorn,
    And climbing for the prize, was torn,
      And fouled my feet in quag-water;
        And by the thorns and by the wind
          The blossom that I took was thinn'd
            And yet I found it sweet and fair.
      - Christina Georgina Rossetti,
        The Honeysuckle

And honeysuckle loved to crawl
  Up the low crag and ruin'd wall.
      - Sir Walter Scott, Marmion
         (canto III, introduction)

Good Margaret, run thee to the parlor.
  There shalt thou find my cousin Beatrice
    Proposing with the Prince and Claudio.
      Whisper her ear and tell her, I and Ursley
        Walk in the orchard, and our whole discourse
          Is all of her. Say that thou overheard'st us;
            And bid her steal into the pleached bower,
              Where honeysuckles, ripened by the sun,
                Forbid the sun to enter--like favorites,
                  Made proud by princes, that advance their pride
                    Against that power that bred it. There will she hide her
                      To listen our propose. This is thy office.
                        Bear thee well in it and leave us alone.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Much Ado About Nothing (Hero at III, i)
