Tulip
 
        The tulip’s petals shine in dew,
All beautiful, but none alike.
Montgomery.    
  1
        Dutch tulips from their beds
Flaunted their stately heads.
Montgomery.    
  2
        And tulips, children love to stretch
Their fingers down, to feel in each
Its beauty’s secret nearer.
E. B. Browning.    
  3
        ’Mid the sharp, short emerald wheat, scarce risen three fingers well,
The wild tulip at end of its tube, blows out its great red bell,
Like a thin clear bubble of blood, for the children to pick and sell.
Robert Browning.    
  4
        Bring the tulip and the rose,
While their brilliant beauty glows.
Eliza Cook.    
  5
        Like tulip-beds of different shape and dyes,
Bending beneath the invisible west-wind’s sighs.
Moore.
