  • He has been in England as long as dove and daw,

    Calling the wild cherry tree the merry tree,

    The rose campion Bridget-in-her-bravery;

    And in a tender mood he, as I guess,

    Christened one flower Love-in-idleness,

    And while he walked from Exeter to Leeds

    One April called all cuckoo-flowers Milkmaids.

    —Edward Thomas, 'Lob'

  • Bridget's in her bravery, love is in idleness;

    Patrick's in the pub, the pelican is in her vuln.

    All is right with the world.

    --- Reynard Fox, 'Hob'.
