DAVID MACBETH MOIR (KNOWN AS DELTA)
Scottish physician and miscellaneous writer
(1798 - 1851)

The increasing influence of the Bible is marvelously great, penetrating everywhere. It carries with it a tremendous power of freedom and justice guided by a combined force of wisdom and goodness.
      - [Bible]

The birds have ceased their songs,
  All save the blackbird, that from yon tall ash,
    'Mid Pinkie's greenery, from his mellow throat,
      In adoration of the setting sun,
        Chants forth his evening hymn.
      - An Evening Sketch [Blackbirds]

"Look to the lilies how they grow!"
  'Twas thus the Saviour said, that we,
    Even in the simplest flowers that blow,
      God's ever-watchful care might see.
      - Lilies [Lilies]

The foxglove, with its stately bells
  Of purple, shall adorn thy dells;
    The wallflower, on each rifted rock,
      From liberal blossoms shall breathe down,
        (Gold blossoms frecked with iron-brown,)
          Its fragrance; while the hollyhock,
            The pink, and the carnation vie
              With lupin and with lavender,
                To decorate the fading year;
                  And larkspurs, many-hued, shall drive
                    Gloom from the groves, where red leaves lie,
                      And Nature seems but half alive.
      - The Birth of the Flowers (st. 14)
        [Flowers]

Stars are the daisies that begem
  The blue fields of the sky,
    Beheld by all, and everywhere,
      Bright prototypes on high.
      - The Daisy (st. 5),
        Dublin University Magazine
        [Daisies : Stars]

Simplest of blossoms! To mine eye
  Thou bring'st the summer's painted sky;
    The May-thorn greening in the nook;
      The minnows sporting in the brook;
        The bleat of flocks; the breath of flowers;
          The song of birds amid the bowers;
            The crystal of the azure seas;
              The music of the southern breeze;
                And, over all, the blessed sun,
                  Telling of halcyon days begun.
      - The Harebell [Harebells]

Rose of the desert! thou art to me
  An emblem of stainless purity,--
    Of those who, keeping their garments white,
      Walk on through life with steps aright.
      - The White Rose [Roses]
