JOHN PHILIPS
English poet
(1676 - 1709)

When swelling buds their od'rous foliage shed,
  And gently harden into fruit, the wise
    Spare not the little offsprings, if they grow
      Redundant.
      - Cider (bk. I) [Wisdom]

Little pains
  In a due hour employ'd great profit yields.
      - Cider (bk. I, l. 126) [Gain]

When the sappy boughs
  Attire themselves with blooms, sweet rudiments
    Of future harvest.
      - Cider (bk. II, l. 437) [Trees]

Thus do I live, from pleasure quite debarred,
  Nor taste the fruits that the sun's genial rays
    Mature, john-apple, nor the downy peach.
      - The Splendid Shilling (l. 115) [Fruits]

My galligaskins, that have long withstood
  The winter's fury, and encroaching frosts,
    By time subdues (what will not time subdue!)
      An horrid chasm disclosed.
      - The Splendid Shilling (l. 121) [Apparel]
