ERASMUS DARWIN
English physician and poet
(1731 - 1802)

And hail their queen, fair regent of the night.
      - Botanic Garden (pt. I, canto II, l. 90)
        [Moon]

Till o'er the wreck, emerging from the storm,
  Immortal Nature lifts her changeful form:
    Mounts from her funeral pyre on wings of flame,
      And soars and shines, another and the same.
      - Botanic Garden (pt. I, canto IV, l. 389)
        [Evolution]

With zealous step he climbs the upland lawn,
  And bows in homage to the rising dawn;
    Imbibes with eagle eye the golden ray,
      And watches, as it moves, the orb of day.
      - Loves of the Plants (canto I, l. 225)
        [Sunflowers]

Soon shall thy arm, unconquered steam, afar
  Drag the slow barge, or drive the rapid car;
    Or on wide waving wings expanded bear
      The flying chariot through the fields of air.
      - The Botanic Garden (pt. I, 1, 289)
        [Navigation]

No radiant pearl, which crested Fortune wears,
  No gem that twinkling hangs from Beauty's wars.
    Not the bright stars which Night's blue arch adorn,
      Nor rising suns that gild the vernal morn,
        Shine with such lustre as the tear that flows
          Down Virtue's manly cheek for others' woes.
      - The Botanic Garden
         (pt. II, canto III, l. 459) [Tears]
