Anemone
 
          Within the woods,
Whose young and half transparent leaves scarce cast
A shade, gray circles of anemones
Danced on their stalks.
        Bryant—The Old Man’s Counsel.
  1
Thy subtle charm is strangely given,
  My fancy will not let thee be,—
Then poise not thus ’twixt earth and heaven,
  O white anemone!
        Elaine Goodale—Anemone.
  2
Anemone, so well
Named of the wind, to which thou art all free.
        George MacDonald—Wild Flowers. L. 9.
  3
From the soft wing of vernal breezes shed,
Anemones, auritulas, enriched
With shining meal o’er all their velvet leaves.
        Thomson—The Seasons. Spring. L. 533.
