Helen Maria Williams
“No riches from his scanty store / My lover could impart; / He gave a boon I valued more — / He gave me all his heart!”
“The night is dark, the waters deep, / Yet soft the billows roll; / Alas! at every breeze I weep — / The storm is in my soul.”
Helen Maria Williams, English political letterwriter, poet, novelist
(1762 - 1827)
