CHARLES TENNYSON TURNER
English divine and poet
(1808 - 1879)

The little bee returns with evening's gloom,
  To join her comrades in the braided hive,
    Where, housed beside their might honey-comb,
      They dream their polity shall long survive.
      - A Summer Night in the Bee Hive [Bees]

Oh! that the memories which survive us here
  Were half so lovely as these wings of thine!
    Pure relics of a blameless life, that shine
      Now thou art gone.
      - On Finding a Small Fly Crushed in a Book
        [Flies]

Hung on the shower that fronts the golden West,
  The rainbow bursts like magic on mine eyes!
    In hues of ancient promise there imprest;
      Frail in its date, eternal in its guise.
      - Sonnets and Fugitive Pieces--The Rainbow
        [Rainbows]

How like the leper, with his own sad cry
  Enforcing his own solitude, it tolls!
    That lonely bell set in the rushing shoals,
      To warn us from the place of jeopardy!
      - The Buoy Bell [Bells]
