Hoyt & Roberts, comps.  Hoyt’s New Cyclopedia of Practical Quotations.  1922.
Arbutus, Trailing (Epigæa repens.)
Darlings of the forest!
  Blossoming alone
When Earth’s grief is sorest
  For her jewels gone—
Ere the last snow-drift melts your tender buds have blown.
        Rose T. Cooke—Trailing Arbutus.
Pure and perfect, sweet arbutus
Twines her rosy-tinted wreath.
        Elaine Goodale—The First Flowers.
The shy little Mayflower weaves her nest,
But the south wind sighs o’er the fragrant loam,
And betrays the path to her woodland home.
        Sarah Helen Whitman—The Waking of the Heart.
