- Beware the serpent, slyly hid, which stings
- The soul with poison of Prosperity.
EDWARD ROBESON TAYLOR, "Adversity"
- Seek not life's jewels where the poppies grow,
- Nor where Desire, all passion-poisoned, rears
- Her luring domes, but in the heart of woe,
- With shores far washed by sanctifying tears.
EDWARD ROBESON TAYLOR, "Life's Jewels"
