Страница 12 - Why art thou silent ? Is thy love a plant Of such weak fibre that the treacherous air Of absence withers what was once so fair ? Is there no debt to pay, no boon to grant ? Yet have my thoughts for thee been vigilant, Bound to thy service with unceasing care — The mind's least generous wish a mendicant For nought but what thy happiness could spare.

Страница 152 - So fair, so sweet, withal so sensitive, Would that the little Flowers were born to live, Conscious of half the pleasure which they give ; That to this mountain-daisy's self were known The beauty of its star-shaped shadow, thrown On the smooth surface of this naked stone...

A backward movement surely have we here,* From manhood — back to childhood ; for the age — 10 Back towards caverned life's first rude career.
Страница 220 - AMONG all lovely things my Love had been ; Had noted well the stars, all flowers that grew About her home ; but she had never seen A glow-worm, never one, and this I knew. While riding near her home one stormy night A single glow-worm did I chance to espy ; I gave a fervent welcome to the sight, And from my horse I leapt ; great joy had I.
