THOMAS YALDEN
English poet and divine
(1671 - 1736)

Darkness, thou first great parent of us all,
  Thou art our great original!
      - [Darkness]

For malice will with joy the lie receive,
  Report, and what it wishes true believe.
      - [Malice]

Pity, the tenderest part of love.
      - [Pity]

Wishes, like painted landscapes, best delight,
  Whilst distance recommends them to the sight.
    Plac'd afar off, they beautiful appear:
      But show their coarse and nauseous colors near.
      - [Distance]

We're charm'd with distant views of happiness,
  But near approaches make the prospect less.
      - Against Enjoyment (l. 23) [Happiness]
