Woodbine (Lonicera)
          And stroke with listless hand
The woodbine through the window, till at last
I came to do it with a sort of love.
        E. B. Browning—Aurora Leigh. Bk. I.
A filbert-hedge with wild-briar overtwined,
And clumps of woodbine taking the soft wind
Upon their summer thrones.
        Keats—I Stood Tiptoe Upon a Little Hill.
And the woodbine spices are wafted abroad,
And the musk of the rose is blown.
        Tennyson—Maud. Pt. XXII. St. I.
