  • Caroline Anne Bowels 1786-1854
  • Caroline Anne Bowles Southey (1786 – 1854), was an English poet and second wife of Robert Southey.
  • Bowles was an experimental and dexterous writer whose publications represent a range of forms:
  • prose fiction (Chapters on Churchyards), verse satire (The Cat's Tail), dramatic monologue (Tales of the Factories), and blank verse autobiography (The Birth-day).
  • In her lifetime she published five books of verse, two books of prose tales and one miscellany of mixed prose and verse
  • Her other works
  • River, river, little river!
  • Bright you sparkle on your way;
  • O’er the yellow pebbles dancing,
  • Through the flowers and foliage glanc
  • Like a child at play
  • River, river! Swelling river!
  • On you rush through rough and smooth
  • Louder, faster, brawling, leapin g over rocks,
  • by rose – banks,
  • Sweeping like impetuous youth.
  • River, River! brimming river!
  • Broad and deep, and still as time,
  • Seeming still, yet still in motion,
  • Tending onward to the ocean,
  • Just like mortal prime
  • River, river! headlong river!
  • Down you dash in to the sea
  • Sea that line hath never sounded,
  • Sea that sail hath never rounded,
  • Like eternity.
