RICHARD HENGIST (HENRY) HORNE
English poet and dramatist
(1803 - 1884)

On me, on me
  Time and change can heap no more!
    The painful past with blighting grief
      Hath left my heart a withered leaf.
        Time and change can do no more.
      - Dirge [Grief]

Far out at sea,--the sun was high,
  While veer'd the wind and flapped the sail,
    We saw a snow-white butterfly
      Dancing before the fitful gale,
        Far out at sea.
      - Genius [Butterflies]

'Tis always morning somewhere in the world.
      - Orion (bk. III, canto II) [Compensation]

The laurel-tree grew large and strong,
  Its roots went searching deeply down;
    It split the marble walls of Wrong,
      And blossomed o'er the Despot's crown.
      - The Laurel Seed [Laurel]

Ye rigid Ploughmen! bear in mind
  Your labour is for future hours:
    Advance--spare not--nor look behind--
      Plough deep and straight with all your powers!
      - The Plough [Agriculture]
