HENRY KIRKE WHITE
English poet
(1785 - 1806)

And sanguine hope through every storm of life,
  Shoots her bright beams, and calms the internal strife.
      - [Proverbs]

Earthly pride is like the passing flower, that springs to fall, and blossoms but to die.
      - [Pride]

Friendship has a power
  To soothe affliction in her darkest hour.
      - [Friendship]

I do not like punishments. You will never torture a child into duty; but a sensible child will dread the frown of a judicious mother more than all the rods, dark rooms, end scolding school-mistresses in the universe.
      - [Childhood : Children]

Oh Ignorance
  Thou art fall'n man's best friend!
      - [Proverbs]

So, on the eastern summit, clad in gray, morn, like a horseman girt for travel, comes, and from his tower of mist night's watchman hurries down.
      - [Morning]

The past is dead, and has no resurrection.
      - [Past]

Who shall contend with time,--unvanquished time, the conqueror of conquerors and lord of desolation?
      - [Time]

And care, whom not the gayest can outbrave,
  Pursues its feeble victim to the grave.
      - Childhood (pt. II, l. 17) [Care]

This is the charm, by sages often told,
  Converting all it touches into gold:
    Content can soothe, where'er by fortune placed,
      Can rear a garden in the desert waste.
      - Clifton Grove (l. 130) [Contentment]

This new Katterfelto, his show to complete,
  Means his boats should all sink as they pass by our fleet;
    Then as under the ocean their course they steer right on,
      They can pepper their foes from the bed of old Triton.
      - The Wonderful Juggler,
        anticipating the submarine in Napoleon's day
        [War]

Where now is Britain?
  . . . .
    Even as the savage sits upon the stone
      That marks were stood her capitols, and hears
        The bittern booming in the weeds, he shrinks
          From the dismaying solitude.
      - Time [Ruin]

To wind the mighty secrets of the past,
  And turn the key of time.
      - Time (l. 249) [Time]

Mild offspring of a dark and sullen sire!
  Whose modest form, so delicately fine,
    Was nursed in whirling storms,
      And cradled in the winds.
        Thee when young spring first question'd winter's sway,
          And dared the sturdy bluster to the fight,
            Thee on his bank he threw
              To mark his victory.
      - To an Early Primrose [Primroses]
