ROBERT SEYMOUR BRIDGES
English author, critic and poet laureate
(1844 - 1930)

There is a hill beside the silver Thames,
  Shady with birch and beech and odorous pine;
    And brilliant underfoot with thousand gems,
      Steeply the thickets to his floods decline.
      - [Thames River]

Thick on the woodland floor
  Gay company shall be,
    Primrose and Hyacinth
      And frail Anemone,
        Perennial Strawberry-bloom,
          Woodsorrel's pencilled veil,
            Dishevel'd Willow-weed
              And Orchis purple and pale.
      - Idle Flowers [Flowers]

Were I a cloud I'd gather
  My skirts up in the air,
    And fly well know whither,
      And rest I well know where.
      - Elegy--The Cliff Top--A Cloud [Clouds]

I have loved flowers that fade,
  Within those magic tents
    Rich hues have marriage made
      With sweet unmemoried scents.
      - Shorter Poets (bk. II, 13) [Flowers]

And whiter grows the foam,
  The small moon lightens more;
    And as I turn me home,
      My shadow walks before.
      - The Clouds have left the Sky [Evening]
