CHARLES SWAIN
English poet and engraver
(1801 - 1874)

Forgive and forget!--why, the world would be lonely,
  The garden a wilderness left to deform,
    If the flowers but remember'd the chilling winds only,
      And the fields gave no verdure for fear of the storm.
      - [Forgiveness]

Let to-morrow take care of to-morrow,
  Leave things of the future to fate;
    What's the use to anticipate sorrow?
      Life's troubles come never too late.
      - [Proverbs]

The sweetest bird builds near the ground,
  The loveliest flower springs low;
    And we must stoop for happiness
      If we its worth would know.
      - [Happiness]

Oh, had I but Aladdin's lamp
  Tho' only for a day,
    I'd try to find a link to bind
      The joys that pass away.
      - Oh, Had I but Aladdin's Lamp [Past]

Time to me this truth has taught,
  ('Tis a treasure worth revealing)
    More offend from want of thought
      Than from any want of feeling.
      - Want of Thought [Thought]
