Charles Kingsley Quotes

    A Farewell: To C.E.G

    My fairest child, I have no song to give you;
    No lark could pipe in skies so dull and gray;
    Yet, if you will, one quiet hint I'll leave you,
    For every day.

    I'll tell you how to sing a clearer carol
    Than lark who hails the dawn or breezy down;
    To earn yourself a purer poet's laurel
    Than Shakespeare's crown.
