Honeysuckles Quotes, Quotations, and Sayings
5 Honeysuckles Quotes
Around in silent grandeur stood
The stately children of the wood;
Maple and elm and towering pine
Mantled in folds of dark woodbine.
Julia C.R. Dorr
Quotes , Source: At the Gate
And honeysuckle loved to crawl
Up the low crag and ruin'd wall.
Sir Walter Scott

Good Margaret, run thee to the parlor.
There shalt thou find my cousin Beatrice
Proposing with the Prince and Claudio.
Whisper her ear and tell her, I and Ursley
Walk in the orchard, and our whole discourse
Is all of her. Say that thou overheard'st us;
And bid her steal into the pleached bower,
Where honeysuckles, ripened by the sun,
Forbid the sun to enter--like favorites,
Made proud by princes, that advance their pride
Against that power that bred it. There will she hide her
To listen our propose. This is thy office.
Bear thee well in it and leave us alone.

I sat me down to watch upon a bank
With ivy canopied and interwove
With flaunting honeysuckle.
Quotes , Source: Comus (l. 543)
I plucked a honeysuckle where
The hedge on high is quick with thorn,
And climbing for the prize, was torn,
And fouled my feet in quag-water;
And by the thorns and by the wind
The blossom that I took was thinn'd
And yet I found it sweet and fair.
Christina G. Rossetti
