Poems of Samuel Rogers

A Character

As thro' the hedge-row shade the violet steals,
And the sweet air its modest leaf reveals;
Her softer charms, but by their influence known,
Surprise all hearts, and mould them to her own.

-------------------------------------------------

Caged in old woods, whose reverend echoes wake
When the hern screams along the distant lake,

[Hata Bildir]
