THOMAS CHATTERTON
English poet
(1752 - 1770)

O, Winter! Put away thy snowy pride;
  O, Spring! Neglect the cowslip and the bell;
    O, Summer! Throw thy pears and plums aside;
      O, Autumn! Bid the grape with poison swell.
      - [Seasons]

O! sing unto my roundelay,
  O! drop thy briny tear with me.
    Dance no more at holiday,
      Like a running river be;
        My love is dead,
          Gone to his death bed
            All under the willow tree.
      - Aella--Minstrel's Songs [Mourning]

O Chryste, it is a grief for me to telle,
  How manie a noble erle and valrous knyghte
    In fyghtynge for Kynge Harrold noblie fell,
      Al sleyne on Hastyng's field in bloudie fyghte.
      - Battle of Hastings [War]

The nesh yonge coweslip bendethe wyth the dewe.
      - Rowley Poems--Aella [Cowslips]

Yun daisyd mantels ys the mountayne dyghte.
      - Rowley Poems--Aella [Daisies]
