Mrs. Barbauld

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]
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]
Fair Venus shines
Even in the eye of day; with sweetest beam
Propitious shines, and shakes a trembling flood
Of softened radiance from her dewy locks.More Mrs. Barbauld quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Is there not
A tongue in every star that talks with man,
And wooes him to be wise? nor wooes in vain;
This dead of midnight is the noon of thought,
And wisdom mounts her zenith with the stars.More Mrs. Barbauld quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
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]
