C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
Acacia
 
        Light-leaved acacias, by the door,
  Stood up in balmy air,
Clusters of blossomed moonlight bore,
  And breathed a perfume rare.
George MacDonald.    
  1
        Our rocks are rough, but smiling there
The acacia waves her yellow hair,
Lonely and sweet, nor loved the less
For flow’ring in a wilderness.
Moore.    
  2
        A great acacia, with its slender trunk
And overpoise of multitudinous leaves,
(In which a hundred fields might spill their dew
And intense verdure, yet find room enough)
Stood reconciling all the place with green.
E. B. Browning.    
  3
        The slender acacia would not shake
  One long milk-bloom on the tree;
The white lake-blossom fell into the lake
  As the pimpernel dozed on the lea;
But the rose was awake all night for your sake,
  Knowing your promise to me;
The lilies and roses were all awake,
  They sighed for the dawn and thee.
Tennyson.    
  4
        Pluck the acacia’s golden balls,
And mark where the red pomegranate falls.
Julia C. R. Dorr.
