INDIAN PIPES
[ Also see Flowers ]

Pale, mournful flower, that hidest in shade
  Mild dewy damps and murky glade,
    With moss and mould,
      Why dost thou hand thy ghastly head,
        So sad and cold?
      - Catharine Esther Beecher,
        To the Monotropa, or Ghost Flower

Where the long, slant rays are beaming,
  Where the shadows cool lie dreaming,
    Pale the Indian pipes are gleaming--
      Laugh, O murmuring Spring!
      - Sarah Foster Davis, Summer Song

I hear, I hear
  The twang of harps, the leap
    Of fairy feet and know the revel's ripe,
      While like a coral stripe
        The lizard cool doth creep,
          Monster, but monarch there, up the pale Indian Pipe.
      - Charles DeKay, Arcana Sylvarum

Death in the wood,--
  In the death-pale lips apart;
    Death in a whiteness that curdled the blood,
      Now black to the very heart:
        The wonder by her was formed
          Who stands supreme in power;
            To show that life by the spirit comes
              She gave up a soulless flower!
      - Elaine Goodale (Mrs. Charles A. Eastman),
        Indian Pipe (st. 4)
