211 ページ - Midst furs and silks and jewels sheen He stood, in simple Lincoln green, The centre of the glittering ring, — And Snowdoun's Knight is Scotland's King!
172 ページ - Felt the light sifted snow-flakes fall. But sleep stole on, as sleep will do When hearts are light and life is new ; Faint and more faint the murmurs grew, Till in the summer-land of dreams They softened to the sound of streams, Low stir of leaves, and dip of oars, And lapsing waves on quiet shores.
251 ページ - THE BROOK-SIDE. I WANDERED by the brook-side, I wandered by the mill, — I could not hear the brook flow, The noisy wheel was still ; There was no burr of grasshopper, No chirp of any bird, But the beating of my own heart Was all the sound I heard.
179 ページ - No gilded dullard native born To stare at his fellow with leaden scorn: Bohemia has none but adopted sons; Its limits, where Fancy's bright stream runs; Its honors, not garnered for thrift or trade, But for beauty and truth men's souls have made. To the empty heart in a jeweled breast There is value, maybe, in a purchased crest; But the thirsty of soul soon learn to know The moistureless froth of the social show; The vulgar sham of the pompous feast...
179 ページ - I'd rather fail in Bohemia than win in another land; There are no titles inherited there, No hoard or hope for the brainless heir; No gilded dullard native born To stare at his fellow with leaden scorn: Bohemia has none but adopted sons; Its limits, where Fancy's bright stream runs; Its honors, not garnered for thrift or trade, But for beauty and truth men's souls have made.
64 ページ - WERTHER had a love for Charlotte Such as words could never utter ; Would you know how first he met her? She was cutting bread and butter. Charlotte was a married lady, And a moral man was Werther, And for all the wealth of Indies, Would do nothing for to hurt her. So he sighed and pined and ogled, And his passion boiled and bubbled, Till he blew his silly brains out, And no...
251 ページ - A man's best things are nearest him, Lie close about his feet, It is the distant and the dim That we are sick to greet...
137 ページ - SHE never loved but once, And then her love did seem Like the opening of the tomb Or the weaving of a dream ; — A premature betrothing To immortal things, — A momentary clothing With an angel's wings. She never loved but once, And then she learnt to feel The wounds that Love inflicts, That love alone can heal : For as that light of life Slowly faded by, She calmed her spirit's strife, In her wish to die ; Yet lived, and Memory drew Some joy from all the pain — Her heart was kind to all But...
136 ページ - A permature betrothing To immortal things, — A momentary clothing With an angel's wings. " She never loved but once, And then she learnt to feel The wounds that love inflicts, That love alone can heal : For as that light of life Slowly faded by, She calmed her spirit's strife, In her wish to die ; " Yet lived, and memory drew Some joy from all the pain — Her heart was kind to all But never loved again. She bid it cease to beat, Till in yon skies above, Love with love should meet, First and only...
