Gentian (Gentiana)
 
And the blue gentian-flower, that, in the breeze,
Nods lonely, of her beauteous race the last.
        Bryant—November.
  1
Thou blossom! bright with autumn dew,
And colour’d with the heaven’s own blue,
That openest when the quiet light
Succeeds the keen and frosty night.
        Bryant—To the Fringed Gentian.
  2
Blue thou art, intensely blue;
Flower, whence came thy dazzling hue?
        Montgomery—The Gentianella.
  3
Beside the brook and on the umbered meadow,
  Where yellow fern-tufts fleck the faded ground,
With folded lids beneath their palmy shadow
  The gentian nods in dewy slumbers bound.
        Sarah Helen Whitman—A Still Day in Autumn. St. 6.
