ORANGES
[ Also see Flowers Fruits Trees ]

The happy bells shall ring Marguerite;
  The summer birds shall sing Marguerite;
    You smile but you shall wear
      Orange blossoms in your hair, Marguerite.
      - Thomas Bailey Aldrich, Wedded

Knowest thou the land where the lemon-trees flourish, where amid the shadowed leaves the golden oranges glisten,--a gentle zephyr breathes from the blue heavens, the myrtle is motionless, and the laurel rises high? Dost thou know it well? Thither, thither, fain would I fly with thee, O my beloved!
  [Ger., Kennst du das Land wo die Citronen bluhen,
    Im dunkeln Laub die Gold-Orangen gluhn,
      Ein sanfter Wind vom blauen Himmel weht
        Die Myrtle still und hoch der Lorbeer steht?
          Kennst du es wohl?
            Dahin! Dahin,
              Mocht' ich mit dir, O mein Geliebter, ziehn.
      - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe,
        Wilhelm Meister--Mignon's Lied

Yes, sing the song of the orange-tree,
  With its leaves of velvet green:
    With its luscious fruit of sunset hue,
      The fairest that ever were seen;
        The grape may have its bacchanal verse,
          To praise the fig we are free;
            But homage I pay to the queen of all,
              The glorious orange-tree.
      - J.K. Hoyt, The Orange-Tree

'Twas noon; and every orange bud
  Hung lanquid o'er the crystal flood,
    Faint as the lids of maiden eyes
      Beneath a lover's burning sighs!
      - Thomas Moore,
        I Stole Along the Flowery Bank

If I were yonder orange-tree
  And thou the blossom blooming there,
    I would not yield a breath of thee
      To scent the most imploring air!
      - Thomas Moore,
        If I Were Yonder Wave, My Dear

Beneath some orange-trees,
  Whose fruit and blossoms in the breeze
    Were wantoning togther free,
      Like age at play with infancy.
      - Thomas Moore,
        Lalla Rookh--Paradise and the Peri
