Hoyt & Roberts, comps.  Hoyt’s New Cyclopedia of Practical Quotations.  1922.
          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.
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.
Anemone, so well
Named of the wind, to which thou art all free.
        George MacDonald—Wild Flowers. L. 9.
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.
