Страница 59 - ALL houses wherein men have lived and died Are haunted houses. Through the open doors The harmless phantoms on their errands glide, With feet that make no sound upon the floors. We meet them at the doorway, on the stair, Along the passages they come and go, Impalpable impressions on the air, A sense of something moving to and fro.
Страница 135 - FOR thee, O dear, dear Country, Mine eyes their vigils keep; For very love, beholding Thy happy name, they weep. The mention of Thy glory Is unction to the breast, And medicine in sickness, And love, and life, and rest.
