Sigourney, L. (n.d.). The Winter Hyacinth. Retrieved from

Excerpt: Thou'rt beautiful, my flower,?my winter flower!? These many weeks I've watch?d thy graceful mesh Of silvery roots, making their busy way Down through the watery element, intent To reach the bottom of thy crystal vase, That deck?d thy mantel. Then, came bursting forth From thy brown bulb, a coronal of leaves, A stalk,?a spike of buds,?and last, thy head,? Heavy with floral bells, and rich with sweets, My glorious hyacinth. Day after day, Thy radiant charms attracted every eye, And many a phrase of admiration woke, As from a lover?s tongue.
