Gorse (Ulex)
 
Mountain gorses, do ye teach us
    *    *    *    *    *
That the wisest word man reaches
Is the humblest he can speak?
        E. B. Browning—Lessons from the Gorse.
  1
Mountain gorses, ever-golden.
Cankered not the whole year long!
Do ye teach us to be strong,
Howsoever pricked and holden
Like your thorny blooms and so
Trodden on by rain and snow,
Up the hillside of this life, as bleak as where ye grow?
        E. B. Browning—Lessons from the Gorse.
  2
Love you not, then, to list and hear
The crackling of the gorse-flower near,
Pouring an orange-scented tide
Of fragrance o’er the desert wide?
        Wm. Howitt—A June Day.
