Famous quotes containing the words henry vaughan and/or vaughan:

    Most blest believer he!
    Who in that land of darkness and blind eyes
    Thy long-expected healing wings could see,
    When thou didst rise,
    And what can never more be done
    Did at midnight speak with the Sun!
    Henry Vaughan (1622–1695)

    So stick up ivy and the bays,
    And then restore the heathen ways,
    Green will remind you of the Spring,
    Though this great day denies the thing,
    And mortifies the earth, and all,
    But your wild revels, and loose hall.
    —Henry Vaughan (1622–1695)
