E'en drunken Andrew felt the blow
That innocence can give,
When its resistless accents flow
To bid affection live.

The fields his study, nature was his book.
Quotes, by Robert Bloomfield , Source: Farmer's Boy--Spring (l. 31)
Build me a shrine, and I could kneel
To rural Gods, or prostrate fall;
Did I not see, did I not feel.
That One Great Spirit governs all.
O Heaven, permit that I may lie
Where o'er my corse green branches wave;
And those who from life's tumults fly
With kindred feelings press my grave.
Quotes, by Robert Bloomfield , Source: Love of the Country (st. 4)
Remember the Viper:--'twas close at your feet,
How you started and threw yourself into my arms;
Not a strawberry there was so ripe nor so sweet
As the lips which I kiss'd to subdue your alarms.
Quotes, by Robert Bloomfield , Source: Nancy (st. 4)
When now, unsparing as the scourge of war,
Blasts follow blasts and groves dismantled roar;
Around their home the storm-pinched cattle lows,
No nourishment in frozen pasture grows;
Yet frozen pastures every morn resound
With fair abundance thund'ring to the ground.
