COVENTRY KERSEY DIGHTON PATMORE
English poet
(1823 - 1896)

Great is his faith who does believe his eyes.
      - [Faith]

To him that waits all things reveal themselves, provided that he has the courage not to deny, in the darkness, what he has seen in the light.
      - [Waiting]

How light the touches are that kiss
  The music from the chords of like!
      - By the Sea [Music]

How should great Jove himself do else than miss
  To win the woman he forgets to kiss.
      - De Natura Deorum [Kisses]

Some dish more sharply spiced than this
  Milk-soup men call domestic bliss.
      - Olympus [Matrimony]

The moods of love are like the wind,
  And none knows whence or why they rise.
      - The Angel in the House--Sarum Plain [Love]

Ah, wasteful woman! she who may
  On her sweet self set her own price,
    Knowing man cannot choose but pay,
      How has she cheapen'd Paradise!
        How given for nought her priceless gift,
          How spoil'd the bread and spill'd the wine,
            Which, spent with due respective thrift,
              Had made brutes men and men divine.
      - The Angel in the House--Unthrift
         (bk. I, canto III, 3) [Women]

Ah, whither shall a maiden flee,
  When a bold youth so swift pursues,
    And siege of tenderest courtesy,
      With hope perseverant, still renews!
      - The Chase [Wooing]

The midge's wing beats to and fro
  A thousand times ere one can utter "O."
      - The Cry at Midnight [Midges]
