WILLIAM COWPER

William Cowper (pronounced Cooper) (November 20, 1731 – April 25, 1800) was an English poet and hymnodist. One of the most popular poets of his time, Cowper changed the direction of 18th century nature poetry by writing of everyday life and scenes of the English countryside.

BEWARE

Beware of desperate steps! The darkest day,
Live till to-morrow, will have pass’d away.

Written by William Cowper
