M'DONALD CLARKE ("THE MAD POET")
American poet
(1798 - 1842)

Night drew her sable curtain down, and pinned it with a star.
      - [Night]

The heart must be at rest before the mind, like a quiet lake under an unclouded summer evening, can reflect the solemn starlight and the splendid mysteries of heaven.
      - [Heart]

While twilight's curtain gathering far,
  Is pinned with a single diamond star.
      - Death in Disguise (l. 227) [Stars]

Whilst twilight's curtain spreading far
  Was pinned with a single star.
      - Death in Disguise (l. 227),
        as it appeared in Boston ed. 1733
        [Stars]

The sun had sunk and the summer skies
  Were dotted with specks of light
    That melted soon in the deep moon-rise
      That flowed over Groton Height.
      - The Graveyard [Moon]

From the looks--not the lips, is the soul reflected.
      - The Rejected Lover [Soul]

Ha! see where the wild-blazing Grog-Shop appears,
  As the red waves of wretchedness swell,
    How it burns on the edge of tempestuous years
      The horrible Light-House of Hell!
      - The Rum Hole [Intemperance]
