Страница vii - YET once more, O ye laurels, and once more Ye myrtles brown, with ivy never sere, I come to pluck your berries harsh and crude, And with forced fingers rude, Shatter your leaves before the mellowing year. Bitter constraint, and sad occasion dear, Compels me to disturb your season due: For Lycidas is dead, dead ere his prime, Young Lycidas, and hath not left his peer.
Страница 75 - Fa fair wood like this, where the beeches are growing, Brave Robin Hood hunted in days of old; Down his broad shoulders his brown locks fell flowing, His cap was of green, with a tassel of gold. His eye was as blue as the sky in midsummer, Ruddy his cheek as the oak-leaves in June, Hearty his voice as he hailed the new-comer, Tender to maidens in changeable tune. His step had a strength, and his smile had a sweetness, His spirit was wrought of the sun and the breeze, He moved as a man framed in nature's...
Страница 76 - ... spirit was wrought of the sun and the breeze, He moved as a man framed in nature's completeness, And grew unabashed with the growth of the trees. And ever to poets, who walk in the gloaming, His horn is still heard in the prime of the year; Last eve he went with us, unseen, in our roaming, And thrilled with his presence the shy troops of deer. When the warm sun sank down in a golden declining, And night clomb the slopes and the firs to their tops, And the faint stars to meet her did brighten...

Страница 77 - Ah ! why should we forfeit this earth we inherit For lives which we cannot expand into rhyme! I think, as I lie in the shade of the beeches, How lived and how loved this old hero of song; I would we could follow the lesson he teaches, And dwell, as he dwelt, these wild thickets among. At least for a while, till we caught up the meaning The beeches breathe out in the wealth of their growth, Width in their nobleness, love in their leaning, And peace at the heart from the fulness of both.
Страница x - ... assured that she was making progress in learning, and that she need give herself no trouble about her physical education, for her cheek was still flushed with health, and her form developing as gracefully and as systematically as the bud matures into the attractive beauties of the rose. CHAPTER IV. Unfolding slow their ivory fringe, The lilies lie upon the pond ; The firs have caught the sunset tinge And murmur elfin-like beyond; I think whoever sought that grove, To dream an hour of love or...
Страница 77 - Which slumbers within for a life that were free. We follow the lead unawares of his spirit, He tells us the tales which we heard in past time; Ah ! why should we forfeit this earth we inherit For lives which we cannot expand into rhyme! I think, as I lie in the shade of the beeches, How lived and how loved this old hero of song; I would we could follow the lesson he teaches, And dwell, as he dwelt, these wild thickets among. At least for a while, till we...
Страница 31 - They make and take the public hue, They count by votes, and she by hearts ! They wear the silk, she wears the serge, They live by peace, she thrives in sorrow, They stand secure, she treads the verge, They have to-day, — she has — to-morrow...
Страница 17 - The farthest isles of the sea rejoice As she flings their cocoa-nuts into his lap ; Rap tap, rap tap, The feudal bonds of the earth go snap ! He who was bred on the cottage floor Climbs the steps to the castle door, Hangs his hat in the blazon'd hall, And floats his flag from the highest wall.
Страница 21 - Fling thyself boldly on the shoreless sea, — God the Upholder will take care of...
