Thomas Hood

Thomas Hood

English poet, humorist and satirist.
I saw old Autumn in the misty morn
Stand shadowless like silence, listening
To silence, for no lonely bird would sing
Into his hollow ear from woods forlorn,
Nor lowly hedge nor solitary thorn;--
Shaking his languid locks all dewy bright
With tangled gossamer that fell by night,
Pearling his coronet of golden corn.More Thomas Hood quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
But who would rush at a benighted man, and give him two black eyes for being blind?More Thomas Hood quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Mother of light! how fairly dost thou go
Over those hoary crests, divinely led!
Art thou that huntress of the silver bow
Fabled of old? Or rather dost thou tread
Those cloudy summits thence to gaze below,
Like the wild chamois from her Alpine snow,
Where hunters never climbed--secure from dread?More Thomas Hood quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
To attempt to advise conceited people is like whistling against the wind.More Thomas Hood quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Alas! for the rarity
Of Christian charity
Under the sun.
Oh! it was pitiful!
Near a whole city full,
Home had she none.More Thomas Hood quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
