Ambrose Philips (c. 1675June 18, 1749) was an English poet.


  • The flowers anew returning seasons bring!
    But beauty faded has no second spring.
    • Lobbing, The First Pastoral (1709)

To Miss Charlotte Pulteney in Her Mother’s Arms[edit]

  • Timely blossom, Infant fair,
    Fondling of a happy pair.
  • And thou shalt in thy daughter see,
    This picture, once, resembled thee.
  • Wearied then and glad of rest,
    Like the linnet in the nest.
