Jean Ingelow
Man dwells apart, though not alone,
He walks among his peers unread;
The best of thoughts which he hath known
For lack of listeners are not said.
Ingelow quotes
But two are walking apart forever
And wave their hands for a mute farewell.
A sweeter woman ne'er drew breath
Than my sonne's wife, Elizabeth.

Ingelow Jean quotes
The while He sits whose name is Love,
And waits, as Noah did, for the dove,
To wit if she would fly to him.
Ingelow Jean
To bear, to nurse, to rear,
To watch and then to lose,
To see my bright ones disappear,
Drawn up like morning dews.
Jean Ingelow quotes
How short our happy days appear!
How long the sorrowful!
Jean Ingelow
Reign, and keep life in this our deep desire
Our only greatness is that we aspire.
