SAMUEL ROGERS
English poet
(1763 - 1855)
 << Prev Page    Displaying page 3 of 3

Devout yet cheerful, active yet resigned.
      - Pleasures of Memory [Character]

I came to the place of my birth and cried: "The friends of my youth, where are they?"--and an echo answered, "Where are they?"
      - Pleasures of Memory (pt. I),
        quoted from an Arabic manuscript [Echo]

Twilight's soft dews steal o'er the village-green,
  With magic tints to harmonize the scene.
    Stilled is the hum that through the hamlet broke
      When round the ruins of their ancient oak
        The peasants flocked to hear the minstrel play,
          And games and carols closed the busy day.
      - Pleasures of Memory (pt. I, l. 1)
        [Twilight]

Long on the wave reflected lustres play.
      - Pleasures of Memory (pt. I, l. 94)
        [Sunset]

Hail, memory, hail! in thy exhaustion mine
  From age to age unnumbered treasures shine!
    Thought and her shadowy brood thy call obey,
      And Place and Time are subject to thy sway!
      - Pleasures of Memory (pt. II, l. 428)
        [Memory]

For who, alas! has lived,
  Nor in the watches of the night recalled
    Words he has wished unsaid and deeds undone.
      - Reflections (l. 52) [Regret]

I am in Rome! Oft as the morning ray
  Visits these eyes, waking at once I cry,
    Whence this excess of joy? What has befallen me?
      And from within a thrilling voice replies,
        Thou art in Rome! A thousand busy thoughts
          Rush on my mind, a thousand images;
            And I spring up as girt to run a race!
      - Rome [Rome]

Go--you may call it madness, folly,
  You shall not chase my gloom away.
    There's such a charm in melancholy,
      I would not, if I could, be gay!
      - To ----- (st. 1) [Melancholy]

Oh, if you knew the pensive pleasure
  That fills my bosom when I sigh,
    You would not rob me of a treasure
      Monarchs are too poor to buy.
      - To ----- (st. 2) [Sighs]

Gentle to others, to himself severe.
      - Voyage of Columbus (canto VI) [Gentleness]
