PARK BENJAMIN
American poet and journalist
(1809 - 1864)

Beauty and grace command the world.
      - [Beauty]

Gold! gold! in all ages the curse of mankind,
  Thy fetters are forged for the soul and the mind.
    The limbs may be free as the wings of a bird,
      And the mind be the slave of a look and a word.
        To gain thee men barter eternity's crown,
          Yield honour, affection, and lasting renown.
      - [Gold]

The mountain rill
  Seeks with no surer flow the far bright sea,
    Than my unchang'd affections flow to thee.
      - [Constancy]

Triumph not, O Time! strong towers decay, but a great name shall never pass away.
      - [Time]

Flowers are Love's truest language; they betray,
  Like the divining rods of Magi old,
    Where precious wealth lies buried, not of gold,
      But love--strong love, that never can decay!
      - Sonnet--Flowers, Love's Truest Language
        [Flowers]

Nigh to a grave that was newly made,
  Leaned a sexton old on his earth-worn spade.
      - The Old Sexton [Graves]
