REV. JAMES HURDIS
English educator and poet
(1763 - 1801)

O, there is a charm
  Which morning has, that gives the brow of age
    A smack of earth, and makes the lip of youth
      Shed perfume exquisite. Expect it not,
        Ye who till noon upon a down bed lie, Indulging feverous sleep.
      - [Early Rising]

What is death
  To him who meets it with an upright heart?
    A quiet haven, where his shatter'd bark
      Harbours secure, till the rough storm is past,
        Perhaps a passage overhung with clouds,
          But at its entrance, a few leagues beyond
            Opening to kinder skies and milder suns,
              And seas pacific as the soul that seeks them.
      - [Death]

Rise with the lark, and with the lark to bed.
      - The Village Curate (l. 276) [Bed : Larks]
