  1. The Tulip

    by Emily Dickinson

    She slept beneath a tree
    Remembered but by me.
    I touched her cradle mute;
    She recognized the foot,
    Put on her carmine suit, —
    And see!

  2. Wild Tulip

    by Hilda Conkling

    Mottled like the tiger-lily leaf,
    With black necklace clinging,
    (Of course it has a green cloak!)
    God has made a tulip.
    He made the glacier like a moving jewel,
    He made the tulip
    Like a red cloud lighted by the sun.
    I wonder how it feels to make a flower
    Or a glacier like a great dream!
