Aster (Aster)
Chide me not, laborious band!
  For the idle flowers I brought;
Every aster in my hand
  Goes home loaded with a thought.
        Emerson—The Apology.
The Autumn wood the aster knows,
  The empty nest, the wind that grieves,
The sunlight breaking thro’ the shade,
The squirrel chattering overhead,
The timid rabbits lighter tread
Among the rustling leaves.
        Dora Read Goodale—Asters.
The aster greets us as we pass
With her faint smile.
        Sarah Helen Whitman—A Day of the Indian Summer. L. 35.
