THISTLES
[ Also see Flowers Plants ]

Up wi' the flowers of Scotland,
  The emblems o' the free
    Their guardians for a thousand years,
      Their guardians still we'll be,
        A foe had better brave the de'il
          Within his reeky cell,
            Than our thistle's purple bonnet,
              Or bonny heather bell.
      - James Hogg ("The Ettrick Shepherd"),
        The Flowers of Scotland

When on the breath of Autumn's breeze,
  From pastures day and brown,
    Goes floating, like an idle thought,
      The fair, white thistle-down;
        O, then what joy to walk at will,
          Upon the golden harvest-hill!
      - Mary Howitt, Corn-Fields
