Mrs. Barbauld

Cruel Remorse! where Youth and Pleasure sport,
And thoughtless Folly keeps her court,--
Crouching 'midst rosy bowers thou lurk'st unseen
Slumbering the festal hours away,
While Youth disports in that enchanting scene;
Till on some fated day
Thou with a tiger-spring dost leap upon thy prey,
And tear his helpless breast, o'erwhelmed with wild dismay.More Mrs. Barbauld quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Child of mortality, whence comest thou? Why is thy countenance
sad, and why are thine eyes red with weeping?More Mrs. Barbauld quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
And when 'midst fallen London they survey
The stone where Alexander's ashes lay,
Shall own with humble pride the lesson just
By Time's slow finger written in the dust.More Mrs. Barbauld quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Man is the nobler growth our realms supply
And souls are ripened in our northern sky.More Mrs. Barbauld quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
So fades a summer cloud away;
So sinks the gale when storms are o'er;
So gently shuts the eye of day;
So dies a wave along the shore.More Mrs. Barbauld quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
