1 A saturated meadow,
2 Sun-shaped and jewel small,
3 A circle scarcely wider
4 Than the trees around were tall:
5 Where the winds were quite excluded,
6 And the air was stifling sweet
7 With the breath of many flowers,----
8 A temple of the heat.
9 There we bowed us in the burning,
10 As the sun’s right worship is,
11 To pick where none could miss them
12 A thousand orchises;
13 For though the grass was scattered,
14 Yet every second spear
15 Seemed tipped with wings of color,
16 That tinged the atmosphere.

A. a small, round spot in the field

  1. For this question re the same poem, I don't think any of the 4 choices is right! I guess your choice is the best of the 4, though, so go with it.
