Famous quotes containing the words cowper and/or lord:

    I heard the bell tolled on thy burial day,
    I saw the hearse that bore thee slow away,
    And, turning from my nursery window, drew
    A long, long sigh, and wept a last adieu!
    —William Cowper (1731–1800)

    ‘Will ye go with me, my hinny and my heart?
    Will you go with me, my dearie?
    And I will swear by the hilt of my spear,
    That your lord shall no more come near thee.’
    Unknown. The Gypsy Laddie (l. 13–16)
