REV. HENRY HART MILMAN
English poet and historian
(1791 - 1868)

Bound upon th' accursed tree,
  Dread and awful, who is He?
    By the prayer for them that slew--
      "Lord, they know not what they do!"
        By the spoiled and empty grave;
          By the souls He died to save;
            By the conquest He hath won;
              By the before His throne;
                By the rainbow round His brow;
                  Son of God, 'tis Thou! 'tis Thou!
      - [Good Friday]

Death cannot come
  To him untimely who is fit to die;
    The less of this cold world, the more of heaven;
      The briefer life, the earlier immortality.
      - [Death]

Her grace of motion and of look, the smooth and swimming majesty of step and tread, the symmetry of form and feature, set the soul afloat, even like delicious airs of flute and harp.
      - [Grace]

I have been a soldier,
  Till the helm hath worn those aged temples bare.
      - [Proverbs]

The less of this cold world the more of heaven.
      - [Proverbs]

Too fair to worship, too divine to love.
      - Apollo Belvidere [Beauty : Women]

The trumpet! the trumpet! the dead have all heard:
  Lo, the depths of the stone-cover'd charnels are stirr'd:
    From the sea, from the land, from the sound and the north,
      The vast generations of man are come forth.
      - Hymns for Church Service--Second Sunday in Advent
         (st. 3) [Resurrection]

And the cold marble leapt to life a God.
      - The Belvedere Apollo [Sculpture]
