|Laurel (Lauras Nobilis)|
|The laurel-tree grew large and strong,|
Its roots went searching deeply down;
It split the marble walls of Wrong,
And blossomed oer the Despots crown.
Richard Hengist HorneThe Laurel Seed.
|This flower that smells of honey and the sea,|
White laurustine, seems in my hand to be
A white star made of memory long ago
Lit in the heaven of dear times dead to me.
