Date of Death: 1787-05-10 (Thursday, May 10th, 1787)



    • April, April, Laugh thy girlish laughter; Then, the moment after, Weep thy girlish tears!
    • O ye by wandering tempest sown 'Neath every alien star, Forget not whence the breath was blown That wafted you afar! For ye are still her ancient seed On younger soil let fall- Children of Britain's island-breed, To whom the Mother in her need Perchance may one day call.
    • The after-silence, when the feast is o'er, And void the places where the minstrels stood, Differs in nought from what hath been before, And is nor ill nor good.
    • Hate and mistrust are the children of blindness-
    • Best they honor thee Who honor in thee only what is best.
    • And though circuitous and obscure The feet of Nemesis how sure!
    • Braying of arrogant brass, whimper of querulous reeds.
    • Deemest thou labor Only is earnest? Grave is all beauty, Solemn is joy.
    • Empires dissolve and peoples disappear, Song passes not away.
    • In this world with starry dome, Floored with gemlike plains and seas, Shall I never feel at home, Never wholly be at ease?
    • On from room to room I stray, Yet mine Host can ne'er espy, And I know not to this day, Whether guest or captive I.
