What is the equivalent of mint in poetry?

The quality of fresh. Alive & quite green.  All herbs have kinship with poetry.  However, they differ in taste & timbre and thus relate to poetry according to those qualities.

Timbre & herbs?  Oh, yes.  Indeed.

    This quality of ghost
    this incessant echo
    Once tamed often returns
    And this she remembered from days on the farm

    Relatives of another dimension
    peered out fromn the rope of her swing
    In the cornfields they waved at her
    and among the blueberries, their eyes shone
