WILLIAM LISLE BOWLES
English divine, poet and antiquary
(1762 - 1850)

Poor Robin sits and sings alone,
  When showers of driving sleet,
    By the cold winds of winter blown,
      The cottage casement beat.
      - [Robins]

The cause of freedom is the cause of God.
      - [Freedom]

There is strange music in the stirring wind!
      - [Wind]

Oh! when 'tis summer weather,
  And the yellow bee, with fairy sound,
    The waters clear is humming round,
      And the cuckoo sings unseen,
        And the leaves are waving green--
          Oh! then 'tis sweet,
            In some retreat,
              To hear the murmuring dove;
                With those whom on earth alone we love,
                  And to wind through the greenwood together.
      - The Greenwood [Doves]
