Buttercup
 
        The buttercups, bright-eyed and bold,
Held up their chalices of gold
To catch the sunshine and the dew.
Julia C. R. Dorr.    
  1
        The buttercups across the field
Made sunshine rifts of splendor.
D. M. Mulock.    
  2
        All will be gay when noontide wakes anew
The buttercups, the little children’s dower.
Robert Browning.    
  3
        When, buttercups are blossoming,
  The poets sang, ’tis best to wed:
So all for love we paired in spring—
  Blanche and I—ere youth had sped.
E. C. Stedman.    
  4
        And O the buttercups! that field
  O’ the cloth of gold, where pennons swam—
Where France set up his lilied shield,
  His oriflamb,
And Henry’s lion-standard rolled:
  What was it to their matchless sheen,
Their million million drops of gold
  Among the green!
Jean Ingelow.
