William Morris (1834-1896) was an English poet, although he is perhaps better known as a textile designer and the founder of the Arts and Crafts Movement.

Extract from Another for the Briar-Rose:

O treacherous scent, O thorny sight,

O tangle of world's wrong and right,

What art thou 'gainst my armour's gleam

but dusky cobwebs of a dream.
