Chrysanthemum (Chrysanthemum)
Fair gift of Friendship! and her ever bright
  And faultless image! welcome now them art,
In thy pure loveliness—thy robes of white,
  Speaking a moral to the feeling heart;
Unscattered by heats—by wintry blasts unmoved—
Thy strength thus tested—and thy charms improved.
        Anna Peyre Dinnies—To a White Chrysanthemum.
Chrysanthemums from gilded argosy
Unload their gaudy scentless merchandise.
        Oscar Wilde—Humanitad. St. 11.
