CHRISTOPHER SMART
English poet
(1722 - 1771)

Awake before the sun is risen, I call for my pen and papers and desk.
      - [Early Rising]

For every house is incomplete without him, and a blessing is lacking in the spirit.
      - [Cats]

Magnific walls, and heaven-assaulting spires.
      - [Spires]

Sweet the young muse with love intense,
  Which smiles o'er sleeping innocence.
      - [Rapture]

Thus when a barber and collier fight,
  The barber beats the luckless collier--white;
    The dusty collier heaves his ponderous sack,
      And, big with vengeance, beats the barber--black.
        In comes the brick-dust man, with grime o'er spread,
          And beats the collier and the barber--red;
            Black, red, and white, in various clouds are toss'd,
              And in the dust they raise the combatants are lost.
      - A Trip to Cambridge,
        soliloquy of the Princess Periwinkle
        [Contention]
