TULIPS
[ Also see Flowers Plants ]

And tulips, children love to stretch
  Their fingers down, to feel in each
    Its beauty's sweet nearer.
      - Elizabeth Barrett Browning,
        A Flower in a Letter

You believe
  In God, for your part?--that He who makes
    Can make good things from ill things, best from worst,
      As men plant tulips upon dunghills when
        They wish them finest.
      - Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Aurora Leigh
         (bk. II)

'Mid the sharp, short emerald wheat, scarce risen three fingers well,
  The wild tulip at the end of its tube, blows out its great red bell,
    Like a thin clear bubble of blood, for the children to pick and sell.
      - Robert Browning,
        Up at a Villa--Down in the City (st. 6)

Bring the tulip and the rose,
  While their brilliant beauty glows.
      - Eliza Cook

The tulip is a courtly quean,
  Whom, therefore, I will shun.
      - Thomas Hood, Flowers

Guarded within the old red wall's embrace,
  Marshalled like soldiers in gay company,
    The tulips stand arrayed. Here infantry
      Wheels out into the sunlight.
      - Amy Lowell, A Tulip Garden

Not one of Flora's brilliant race
  A form more perfect can display;
    Art could not feign more simple grace
      Nor Nature take a line away.
      - James Montgomery, On Planting a Tulip-Root

The tulip's petals shine in dew,
  All beautiful, but none alike.
      - James Montgomery, On Planting a Tulip-Root

Dutch tulips from their beds
  Flaunted their stately heads.
      - James Montgomery, The Adventure of a Star

Like tulip-beds of different shape and dyes,
  Bending beneath the invisible west-wind's sighs.
      - Thomas Moore,
        Lalla Rookh--The Veiled Prophet of Khorassan
