COMPASS PLANT
[ Also see Plants ]

Look at this vigorous plant that lifts its head from the meadow,
  See how its leaves are turned to the north, as true as the magnet;
    This is the compass-flower, that the finger of God has planted
      Here in the houseless wild, to direct the traveller's journey.
        Over the sea-like, pathless, limitless waste of the desert,
          Such in the soul of man is faith.
      - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Evangeline
         (pt. II, st. 4, l. 140)
