„I send thee pansies while the year is young,
Yellow as sunshine, purple as the night;
Flowers of remembrance, ever fondly sung
By all the chiefest of the Sons of Light.“

Poem: Pansies.

„Tempests and windes and winter-nights
Vex not, that but One sees thee grow,
That One made all these lesser lights.“

"The Seed Growing Secretly".
Silex Scintillans (1655)
Contexto: Tempests and windes and winter-nights
Vex not, that but One sees thee grow,
That One made all these lesser lights.
If those bright joys He singly sheds
On thee, were all met in one crown,
Both sun and stars would hide their heads;
And moons, though full, would get them down.

The days of misery;
The long, long years of dark despair,
That crushed and tortured thee.“

The tear of anguish start;
I little knew what wilder woe
Had filled the Poet's heart.I did not know the nights of gloom,
The days of misery;
The long, long years of dark despair,
That crushed and tortured thee.</p
