|Nosegays! leave them for the waking,|
Throw them earthward where they grew
Dim are such, beside the breaking
Amaranths he looks unto.
Folded eyes see brighter colors than the open ever do.

And daffodillies fill their cups with tears,
To strew the laureate hearse where Lycid lies.

|Immortal amaranth, a flower which once|
In Paradise, fast by the Tree of Life,
Began to bloom, but soon for Mans offence,
To heavn removd, where first it grew, there grows,
And flowrs aloft shading the fount of life.
MiltonParadise Lost. Bk. III. L. 353.
|Amaranths such as crown the maids|
That wander through Zamaras shades.
