Asphodel (Asphodelus)
 
With her ankles sunken in asphodel
She wept for the roses of earth which fell.
        E. B. Browning—Calls on the Heart.

By the streams that ever flow,
By the fragrant winds that blow
    O’er the Elysian flow’rs;
By those happy souls who dwell
In yellow mead of asphodel.
        Pope—Ode on St. Cecilia’s Day.
