27 ページ - Oh, Love ! what is it in this world of ours Which makes it fatal to be loved ? Ah why With cypress branches hast thou wreathed thy bowers, And made thy best interpreter a sigh ? As those who dote on odours pluck the flowers, And place them on their breast — but place to die — Thus the frail beings we would fondly cherish Are laid within our bosoms but to perish...
168 ページ - TIRED Nature's sweet restorer, balmy Sleep ! He, like the world, his ready visit pays Where Fortune smiles ; the wretched he forsakes ; Swift on his downy pinion flies from woe, And lights on lids unsullied with a tear.

35 ページ - IF THAT HIGH WORLD. IP that high world, which lies beyond Our own, surviving Love endears ; If there the cherish'd heart be fond, The eye the same, except in tears...
202 ページ - Mais elle e'tait du monde, ou les plus belles choses Ont le pire destin ; Et, rose, elle a vecu ce que vivent les roses, L'espace d'un matin.
70 ページ - And venture into love ! The maid that loves, Goes out to sea upon a shattered plank, And puts her trust in miracles for safety.
146 ページ - You will go to the Breakfast, of course ?" said D'Arcy, one morning, in Mrs. Harcourt's drawingroom. " Certainly, as I am invited. Shall you go ? — but it is no use asking, as it is not to be for a week.
