Dec 18
English poet. He was of the Aesthetic movement of the 1890s; his most famous poem, "The Hound of Heaven," describes the pursuit of the human soul by God.
         
   
F
All things by immortal power,
Near and Far
Hiddenly
To each other linked are,
That thou canst not stir a flower
Without troubling of a star.

R
Spring is come home with her world-wandering feet.
And all the things are made young with young desires.
A
Summer set lip to earth's bosom bare
And left the flushed print in a poppy there.
N
The innocent moon, that nothing does but shine,
Moves all the labouring surges of the world.
K
Nothing begins and nothing ends
That is not paid with moan;
For we are born in others' pain.
And perish in our own.
