Ralph Hodgson
I saw with open eyes, Singing birds sweet, Sold in the shops, For the people to eat, Sold in the shops of, Stupidity Street.
Hodgson quotes
Reason has moons, but moons not hers
Lie mirror'd on her sea,
Confounding her astronomers,
But, O! delighting me.
'Twould ring the bells of Heaven
The wildest peal for years,
If Parson lost his senses
And people came to theirs,
And he and they together
Knelt down with angry prayers
For tamed and shabby tigers
And dancing dogs and bears,
And wretched, blind, pit ponies,
And little hunted hares.

Hodgson Ralph quotes
God loves an idle rainbow, Not less than labouring seas.
Hodgson Ralph
Time, you old gipsy man,
Will you not stay,
Put up your caravan
Just for one day?
