LAMAN BLANCHARD
English journalist and litterateur
(1803 - 1845)

A liberal worlding, gay philosopher
  Art thou that lift'st thy young and yellow head
    O'er the dim burial of the scarce-cold dead,
      Building above thy brother's sepulchre
        A home of love, that sense might almost err,
          Dreaming thine end therein to woo and wed
            The flower-haired earth forever. Yet the red
              In yonder West may well such dreams deter!
                Yes, thou all-hail'd to-day, whose outstretched hand
                  Scatters loose riches on a bankrupt land
                    Even though thou art but a leaf from off the tree
                      Of yellowing time;--a grain of glistening sand,
                        Dashed from the waters of that unsailed sea
                          Where thou to-night shall sink, and I as soon may be.
      - [Today]

Glass antique! 'twixt thee and Nell
  Draw we here a parallel!
    She, like thee, was forced to bear
      All reflections, foul or fair.
        Thou art deep and bright within,
          Depths as bright belong'd to Gwynne;
            Thou art very frail as well,
              Frail as flesh is,--so was Nell.
      - Nell Gwynne's Looking Glass (st. 1)
        [Comparison : Frailty]

Pleasures lie thickest where no pleasures seem;
  There's not a leaf that falls upon the ground
    but holds some joy of silence or of sound,
      Some sprite begotten of a summer dream.
      - Sonnet VII--Hidden Joys [Pleasure]
