MICHAEL BRUCE
Scottish poet
(1746 - 1767)

The lily of the vale, of flowers the queen,
  Puts on the robe she neither sew'd nor spun.
      - Elegy [Lilies-of-the-valley]

Oft morning dreams presage approaching fate,
  For morning dreams, as poets tell, are true.
      - Elegy on Spring [Dreams]

Now spring returns; but not to me returns
  The vernal joy my better years have known;
    Dim in my breast life's dying taper burns,
      And all the joys of life with health have flown.
      - Elegy, written in Spring [Spring]

In every pang that rends the heart
  The Man of Sorrows had a part.
      - Gospel Sounds--Christ Ascended [Christ]

But evil fortune has decreed,
  (The foe of mice as well as men)
    The royal mouse at last should bleed,
      Should fall--ne'er to arise again.
      - Musiad [Disappointment]
