Hoyt & Roberts, comps.  Hoyt’s New Cyclopedia of Practical Quotations.  1922.
Marsh Marigold (Caltha Palustris)
The seal and guerdon of wealth untold
We clasp in the wild marsh marigold.
        Elaine Goodale—Nature’s Coinage.
Fair is the marigold, for pottage meet.
        Gay—Shepherd’s Week. Monday. L. 46.
A little marsh-plant, yellow green,
  And prick’d at lip with tender red,
  Tread close, and either way you tread,
Some faint black water jets between
  Lest you should bruise the curious head.
        Swinburne—The Sundew.
