The water-lily starts and slides Upon the level in little puffs of wind, Tho' anchor'd to the bottom.Alfred Tennyson
What loved little islands, twice seen in their lakes:;: Can the wild water-lily restore.thomas campbell
The slender water-lily Peeps dreamingly out of the lake; The moon, oppress'd with love's sorrow, Looks tenderly down for her sake.Heinrich Heine
