EUGENE FIELD
American poet, journalist, humorist and lecturer
(1850 - 1895)

He is so mean, he won't let his little baby have more than one measle at a time.
      - [Meanness]

Man is not the prince of creatures,
  But in reason; fail that, he is worse
    Than horse or dog, or beast of wilderness.
      - [Reason]

The two principal names which are applied to Deity in the Old Testament are Jehovah and God (in Hebrew, Elohim). The former is God's proper name, and clearly applies to the divine essence. This name is always singular, and may be rendered, "He who exists." The other name, Aleim or Elohim, in plural. And the question occurs, Why is the name Jehovah, which refers to His essence, always singular? Plainly, to express the unity of the divine essence. Why is the other, Elohim, plural? As clearly to denote a plurality of persons in the Godhead.
      - [Trinity Sunday]

If thou wilt close thy drowsy eyes,
  My mulberry one, my golden son,
    The rose shall sing thee lullabies,
      My pretty cosset lambkin!
      - Armenian Lullaby [Sleep]

The mill goes toiling slowly round
  With steady and solemn creak,
    And my little one hears in the kindly sound
      The voice of the old mill speak;
        While round and round those big white wings
          Grimly and ghostlike creep,
            My little one hears that the old mill sings,
              Sleep, little tulip, sleep.
      - Nightfall in Dordrecht [Sleep]

The biggest fish he ever caught were those that got away.
      - Our Biggest Fish [Fishing]

Any color, so long as it's red,
  Is the color that suits me best,
    Though I will allow there is much to be said
      For yellow and green and the rest.
      - Red [Beauty]

When I demanded of my friend what viands he preferred,
  He quoth, "A large cold bottle, and a small hot bird!"
      - The Bottle and the Bird [Eating]

How gracious those dews of solace that over my senses fall
  At the clink of the ice in the pitcher the boy brings up the hall.
      - The Clink of the Ice [Drinking]

A little peach in an orchard grew,--
  A little peach of emerald hue;
    Warmed by the sun and wet by the dew
      It grew.
      - The Little Peach [Peaches]

All human joys are swift of wing,
  For heaven doth so allot it;
    That when you get an easy thing,
      You find you haven't got it.
      - Ways of Life [Joy]

Wynken, Blynken and Nod one night
  Sailed off in a wooden shoe--
    Sailed on a river of crystal light
      Into a sea of dew.
      - Wynken, Blynken and Nod [Childhood]
