Our plenteous streams a various race supply,
  The bright-eyed perch with fins of Tyrian dye,
    The silver eel, in shining volumes roll'd,
      The yellow carp, in scales bedropp'd with gold,
        Swift trouts, diversified with crimson stains,
          And pikes, the tyrants of the wat'ry plains.
      - Windsor Forest (l. 141) [Fish]

Not half so swift the trembling doves can fly,
  When the fierce eagle cleaves the liquid sky;
    Not half so swiftly the fierce eagle moves,
      When thro' the clouds he drives the trembling doves.
      - Windsor Forest (l. 185) [Doves]

Or looks on heav'n with more than mortal eyes,
  Bids his free soul expatiate in the skies,
    Amid her kindred stars familiar roam,
      Survey the region, and confess her home.
      - Windsor Forest (l. 264) [Soul]

The grave unites; where e'en the great find rest,
  And blended lie th' oppressor and th' oppressed!
      - Windsor Forest (l. 317) [Graves]

She saw her sons with purple death expire,
  Her sacred domes involved in rolling fire,
    A dreadful series of intestine wars,
      Inglorious triumphs and dishonest scars.
      - Windsor Forest (l. 323) [War]

Here Ceres' gifts in waving prospect stand,
  And nodding tempt the joyful reaper's hand.
      - Windsor Forest (l. 39) [Agriculture]

Proud Nimrod first the bloody chase began,
  A mighty hunter, and his prey was man.
      - Windsor Forest (l. 61) [Chase]

Round broken columns clasping ivy twin'd.
      - Windsor Forest (l. 69) [Ivy]

The balmy zephyrs, silent since her death,
  Lament the ceasing of a sweeter breath.
      - Winter (l. 45) [Zephyrs]

Time conquers all, and we must time obey.
      - Winter (l. 88) [Time]
