William Johnson Cory (1823–1892) was a British poet.


  • They told me, Heraclitus, they told me you were dead,
    They brought me bitter news to hear and bitter tears to shed.
  • Still are thy pleasant voices, thy nightingales, awake;
    For Death, he taketh all away, but them he cannot take.
    • Poem Heraclitus.
