Windflower (Anemone)
 
Or, bide thou where the poppy blows
With windflowers frail and fair.
        Bryant—The Arctic Lover.
  1
The little windflower, whose just opened eye
Is blue as the spring heaven it gazes at.
        Bryant—A Winter Piece.
  2
The starry, fragile windflower,
  Poised above in airy grace,
Virgin white, suffused with blushes,
  Shyly droops her lovely face.
        Elaine Goodale—The First Flowers.
  3
Thou lookest up with meek, confiding eye
  Upon the clouded smile of April’s face,
Unharmed though Winter stands uncertain by,
  Eyeing with jealous glance each opening grace.
        Jones Very—The Windflower.
