A crowd of shivering slaves of every nation,
  And age, and sex, were in the market rang'd;
    Each bevy with the merchant in his station:
      Poor creatures! their good looks were sadly chang'd;
        All save the blacks seem'd jaded with vexation,
          From friends, and home, and freedom far estrang'd.
            The negroes more philosophy display'd,--
              Used to it, no doubt, as eels are to be flay'd.
      - [Slavery]

A drop of ink may make a million think.
      - [Ink]

A hand may first, and then a lip be kiss'd.
      - [Proverbs]

A light broke in upon my soul--
  It was the carol of a bird;
    It ceased--and then it came again
      The sweetest song ear ever heard.
      - [Birds]

A little stream came tumbling from the height,
  And struggling into ocean as it might.
    Its bounding crystal frolick'd in the ray,
      And gush'd from cliff to crag with saltless spray.
      - [Rivers]

A mere soldier, a mere tool, a kind
  Of human sword in a friend's hand.
      - [Soldiers]

A paler shadow strews
  Its mantle o'er the mountains; parting day
    Dies like a dolphin, whom each pang imbues
      With a new colour as it gasps away
        The last still loveliest 'till--'tis gone--and all is grey.
      - [Evening]

A pretty woman is a welcome guest.
      - [Guests]

A quill hath proved the noblest gift to man.
      - [Quill]

A real spirit
  Should neither court neglect, nor dread to bear it.
      - [Courage]

A rose with all its sweetest leaves yet folded.
      - [Children]

A sword laid by,
  Which eats into itself, and rusts ingloriously.
      - [Proverbs]

A tigress, robb'd of young, a lioness,
  Or other interesting beast of prey,
    Are similes at hand for the distress
      Of ladies who cannot have their own way.
      - [Proverbs]

A young star, who shone
  O'er life, too sweet an image for such gloss,
    A lovely being scarcely form'd or moulded,
      A rose with all its sweetest leaves yet folded.
      - [Infancy]

Above me are the Alps,
  The palaces of Nature, whose vast walls
    Have pinnacled in clouds their snowy scalps,
      And thron'd Eternity in icy halls
        Of cold sublimity, where forms and falls
          The avalanche--the thunderbolt of snow!
            All that expands the spirit, yet appals,
              Gather round these summits, as to show
                How Earth may pierce to Heaven, yet leave vain man below.
      - [Mountains]

Adieu, adieu! my native shore
  Fades o'er the waters blue.
      - [Adieu]

Adversity is the first path to truth.
      - [Adversity]

Ah, happy years, once more who would not be a boy!
      - [Proverbs]

Ah, Vice! how soft are thy voluptuous ways!
  While boyish blood is mantling, who can 'scape
    The fascination of thy magic gaze?
      - [Vice]

Alas! our young affections run to waste,
  Or water but the desert.
      - [Affection]

Alas! the breast that inly bleeds has nought to fear from outward blow.
      - [Grief]

Alas! there is no instinct like the heart!
      - [Heart]

All is gentle; nought
  Stirs rudely; but congenial with the night,
    Whatever walks is gliding like a spirit.
      - [Night]

All is to be feared where all is to be lost.
      - [Caution]

All our advantages are those of fortune; birth, wealth, health, beauty, are her accidents; and when we cry out against fate, it were well we should remember fortune can take naught save what she gave.
      - [Fortune]
