Letitia Elizabeth Landon
You may find many a brighter one
Than your own rose, but there are none
So true to thee, Love.
Landon quotes
These are thy bridal flowers
I am now wreathing;
This is thy marriage hymn
I am now breathing.
Then they were silent:--words are little aid
To Love, whose deepest vows are ever made
By the heart's beat alon.

It is a night of summer,--and the sea
Sleeps, like a child, in mute tranquillity.
Landon Letitia Elizabeth
Alas! we make
A ladder of our thoughts, where angels step,
But sleep ourselves at the foot: our high resolves
Look down upon our slumbering acts.
The father had prayed o'er his only son!
Letitia Elizabeth Landon
Oh, tears are a most worthless token,
When hearts they would have soothed are broken.
