Creative Quotations from . . .
Francis Thompson
(1859-1907) born on
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.
All things by immortal power,
Near and Far
To each other linked are,
That thou canst not stir a flower
Without troubling of a star.

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