Arthur Quiller-Couch, comp.  The Oxford Book of Victorian Verse.  1922.
 
The First Fathers
By Robert Stephen Hawker (1803–1875)
 
THEY rear’d their lodges in the wilderness,
Or built them cells beside the shadowy sea,
And there they dwelt with angels, like a dream!
So they unroll’d the Volume of the Book
And fill’d the fields of the Evangelist        5
    With thoughts as sweet as flowers.
