HYACINTHS
[ Also see Flowers Plants ]

The hyacinth for constancy wi' its unchanging blue.
      - Robert Burns, O Luve Will Venture In

Art thou a hyacinth blossom
  The shepherds upon the hills
    Have trodden into the ground?
      Shall I not life thee?
      - William Bliss Carman,
        translation of Sappho

Come, evening gale! the crimson rose
  Is dropping for thy sighe of dewe;
    The hyacinthe wooes thy kisse to close
      In slumberre sweete its eye of blue.
      - George Croly, Inscription for a Grotto

By field and by fell, and by mountain gorge,
  Shone Hyacinths blue and clear.
      - Lucy Hooper, Legends of Flowers (st. 3)

Here hyacinths of heavenly blue
  Shook their rich tresses to the morn.
      - James Montgomery, The Adventure of a Star

If of thy mortal goods thou art bereft,
  And from thy slender store two loaves alone to thee are left,
    Sell one, and with the dole
      Buy hyacinths to feed thy soul.
      - Moslih Eddin (Muslih-un-Din) Saadi (Sadi),
        Gulistan (Garden of Roses)

And the hyacinth purple, and white, and blue,
  Which flung from its bells a sweet peal anew
    Of music so delicate, soft, and intense,
      It was felt like an odour within the sense.
      - Percy Bysshe Shelley, The Sensitive Plant
         (pt. I)
