MRS. MARY B. TIGHE
Irish poet
(1773 - 1810)

How much they err who, to their interest blind, slight the calm peace which from retirement flows!
      - [Retirement]

Oh! how impatience gains upon the soul
  When the long-promis'd hour of joy draws near!
    How slow the tardy moments seem to roll!
      What spectres rise of inconsistent fear!
      - [Expectation]

Well the art thou knowest in soft forgetfulness to steep the eyes which sorrow taught to watch and weep.
      - [Sleep]

Yet in that bulb, those sapless scales,
  The lily wraps her silver vest,
    Till vernal suns and vernal gales
      Shall kiss once more her fragrant breast.
      - The Lily [Lilies]
