J.K. HOYT
American journalist, writer and compiler of quotations
(1820 - 1895)

Purple, violet, gold and white,
  Royal clouds are they;
    Catching the spear-like rays in the west--
      Lining therewith each downy nest,
        At the close of Summer day.
          Forming and breaking in the sky,
            I fancy all shapes are there;
              Temple, mountain, monument, spire;
                Ships rigged out with sails of fire,
                  And blown by the evening air.
      - [Sunset]

Forming and breaking in the sky,
  I fancy all shapes are there;
    Temple, mountain, monument, spire;
      Ships rigged out with sails of fire,
        And blown by the evening air.
      - A Summer Sunset [Sunset]

Shout now! The months with loud acclaim,
  Take up the cry and send it forth;
    May breathing sweet her Spring perfumes,
      November thundering from the North.
        With hands upraised, as with one voice,
          They join their notes in grand accord;
            Hail to December! say they all,
              It gave to Earth our Christ the Lord!
      - The Meeting of the Months [December]

Yes, sing the song of the orange-tree,
  With its leaves of velvet green:
    With its luscious fruit of sunset hue,
      The fairest that ever were seen;
        The grape may have its bacchanal verse,
          To praise the fig we are free;
            But homage I pay to the queen of all,
              The glorious orange-tree.
      - The Orange-Tree [Oranges]
