Henry Vaughan Quotes

    I Walk'D The Other Day

    1 I walk'd the other day, to spend my hour,
    2 Into a field,
    3 Where I sometimes had seen the soil to yield
    4 A gallant flow'r;
    5 But winter now had ruffled all the bow'r
    6 And curious store
    7 I knew there heretofore.

    8 Yet I, whose search lov'd not to peep and peer
