But beside it I have planted a green Bay-tree, A sweet Bay, an Olive, and aTurkey Fig, A Fig, an Olive, and a Bay. (Mary) Ursula Bethell
From a Garden in the Antipodes,'Detail'.
I myself have seen the ungodly in great power, and flourishing like a green bay-tree.I went by, and lo, he was gone: I sought him, but his place could no where be found. Keep innocency, and take heed unto the thing that is right: for that shall bring a man peace at the last. Book of Common Prayer
Gwine to run all night, Gwine to run all day, I'll bet my money on de bob-tail nag, Somebody bet on de bay. Stephen Collins Foster
'Camptown Races', chorus.
I must be mad, or very tired, When the curve of a blue bay beyond a railroad track Is shrill and sweet to me like the sudden springing of a tune, And the sight of a white church above thin trees in a city square Amazes my eyes as though it were the Parthenon. Amy Lowell
Thou who didst waken from his summer dreams The blue Mediterranean, where he lay, Lulled by the coil of his crystalline streams Beside a pumice isle in Baiae's bay, And saw in sleep old palaces and towers Quivering within the wave's intenser day, All overgrown with azure moss and flowers So sweet, the sense faints picturing them. Percy Bysshe Shelley
'Ode to theWestWind', l.29^36.
Continuous as the stars that shine And twinkle on the milky way They stretched in never-ending line Along the margin of a bay: Ten thousand saw I at a glance, Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.
