Chestnut Tree (Castanea Vesca)
 
          When I see the chestnut letting
All her lovely blossoms falter down, I think,
      “Alas the day!”
        Jean Ingelow—The Warbling of Blackbirds.

The chestnuts, lavish of their long-hid gold,
To the faint Summer, beggared now and old,
Pour back the sunshine hoarded ’neath her favoring eye.
        Lowell—Indian-Summer Reverie. St. 10.
