C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
Anemone
 
        Anemone, so well
Named of the wind, to which thou art all free.
George MacDonald.    
  1
        From the soft wing of vernal breezes shed,
Anemones, auriculas, enriched
With shining meal o’er all their velvet leaves.
Thomson.    
  2
        Anemones and seas of gold,
  And new-blown lilies of the river,
And those sweet flow’rets that unfold
  Their buds on Camadera’s quiver.
Moore.    
  3
        Thy subtle charm is strangely given,
  My fancy will not let thee be—
Then poise not thus ’twixt earth and heaven,
  O white anemone!
Elaine Goodale.    
  4
                        Within the woods,
Whose young and half transparent leaves scarce cast
A shade, gray circles of anemones
Danced on their stalks.
Bryant.    
  5
