Mary Howitt
Yes, in the poor man's garden grow
Far more than herbs and flowersó
Kind thoughts, contentment, peace of mind,
And joy for weary hours.
Howitt quotes
"Will you walk into my parlour?" said a spider to a fly;
"'T is the prettiest little parlour that ever you did spy."
The wild sea roars and lashes the granite cliffs below,
And round the misty islets the loud strong tempests blow.

Howitt Mary quotes
Old England is our home, and Englishmen are we;
Our tongue is known in every clime, our flag in every sea.
