PHOEBE CARY
American poet
(1824 - 1871)

Ah, there are moments for us here, when, seeing
  Life's inequalities, and woe, and care,
    The burdens laid upon our mortal being
      Seem heavier than the human heart can bear.
      - [Melancholy]

For those roses bright, oh, those roses bright!
  I have twined them in my sister's locks
    That are hid in the dust from sight.
      - [Roses]

O years, gone down into the past,
  What pleasant memories come to me
    Of your untroubled days of peace,
      And hours almost of ecstasy.
      - [Remembrance]

Women are only told that they resemble angels when they are young and beautiful; consequently, it is their persons, not their virtues, that procure them homage.
      - [Youth]

For little children everywhere
  A joyous season still we make;
    We bring our precious gifts to them,
      Even for the dear child Jesus' sake.
      - Christmas [Christmas]

There are eyes half defiant,
  Half meek and compliant;
    Black eyes, with a wondrous, witching charm
      To bring us good or to work with harm.
      - Dove's Eyes [Eyes]

Father, perfect my trust;
  Let my spirit feel in death
    That her feet are firmly set
      On the rock of a living faith!
      - Nearer Home [Trust]

I know not which I love the most,
  Nor which the comeliest shows,
    The timid, bashful violet
      Or the royal-hearted rose:
        The pansy in purple dress,
          The pink with cheek of red,
            Or the faint, fair heliotrope, who hangs,
              Like a bashful maid her head.
      - Spring Flowers [Flowers]

You may wear your virtues as a crown,
  As you walk through life serenely,
    And grace your simple rustic gown
      With a beauty more than queenly.
        Though only one for you shall care,
          One only speak your praises;
            And you never wear in your shining hair,
              A richer flower than daisies.
      - The Fortune in the Daisy [Daisies]
