BERNARD BARTON
English poet
(1784 - 1849)

Most glorious art thou! when from thy pavilion
  Thou lookest forth at morning; flinging wide
    Its curtain clouds of purple and vermillion,
      Dispensing life and light on every side.
      - [Sun]

No age, sex, or condition is above or below the absolute necessity of modesty; but without it one is vastly beneath the rank of man.
      - [Modesty]

Obstinacy and vehemency in opinion are the surest proofs of stupidity.
      - [Obstinacy]

When thou a fast would'st keep,
  Make not thy homage cheap,
    By publishing its signs to every eye;
      But let it be between Thyself and the Unseen,
        So shall it gain acceptance from on high.
      - [Lent]

As I walk'd by myself, I talk'd to myself
  And myself replied to me;
    And the questions myself then put to myself,
      With their answers I give to thee.
      - Colloquy with Myself,
        appeared in "Youth's Instructor", Dec. 1826
        [Self-examination]

Welcome, wild harbinger of spring!
  To this small nook of earth;
    Feeling and fancy fondly cling
      Round thoughts which owe their birth
        To thee, and to the humble spot
          Where chance has fixed thy lowly lot.
      - To a Crocus [Crocuses]
