Cedar (Cedrus)
O’er yon bare knoll the pointed cedar shadows
Drowse on the crisp, gray moss.
        Lowell—An Indian-Summer Reverie.
Thus yields the cedar to the axe’s edge,
Whose arms gave shelter to the princely eagle.
        Henry VI. Pt. III. Act V. Sc. 2. L. 11.
High on a hill a goodly Cedar grewe,
Of wond’rous length and straight proportion,
That farre abroad her daintie odours threwe;
’Mongst all the daughters of proud Libanon,
Her match in beautie was not anie one.
        Spenser—Visions of the World’s Vanitie. St. 7.
