THE BLUE GENTIAN, by                    
First Line: With misty stars in chalice blue
Last Line: Or sunbeams crown the sky.
Subject(s): Flowers; Gentians; Fringed Gentians


With misty stars in chalice blue
(The blue of the midnight sky),
The gentian grows from the marshy sod
Where sentinel grasses watch and nod,
Content to grow at the feet of God
While myriad stars pass in review
Or sunbeams crown the sky.
