Orchid (Orchis)
 
In the marsh pink orchid’s faces,
With their coy and dainty graces,
Lure us to their hiding places—
  Laugh, O murmuring Spring!
        Sarah F. Davis—Summer Song.

Around the pillars of the palm-tree bower
  The orchids cling, in rose and purple spheres;
Shield-broad the lily floats; the aloe flower
  Foredates its hundred years.
        Bayard Taylor—Canopus.
