Whose sluggish minds, e'en in fair honor's field,

And wield a flesh-hook rather than a sword.More Joanna Baillie [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Sweet sleep be with us, one and all!
And if upon its stillness fall
The visions of a busy brain,
We'll have our pleasure o'er again,
To warm the heart, to charm the sight,
Gay dreams to all! good night, good night.More Joanna Baillie [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

But those who slide along the grassy sod,
And sting the luckless foot that presses them?

Do bask their spotted skins in Fortune's sun,
And sting the soul.More Joanna Baillie [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

Like infant charity.More Joanna Baillie [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
