Caroline Anne Southey
“How happily, how happily, the flowers die away! / Oh! Could we but return to earth as easily as they.”
“After long absence, of return / To my dear home — Oh, happiness! / To lie in blissful consciousness / Of all around: The picture there — / The books — the flower-glass filled with care / By a kind hand — And then to know, / 'Twas but to rise, and meet below / Such a heart's welcome!”
“Fruit forced is never half so sweet / As that comes quite in season.”
Caroline Anne Southey, English poet
(1786 - 1854)
Full name: Caroline Anne Bowles Southey.
