Pagina 132 - Wept o'er his wounds, or, tales of sorrow done, Shouldered his crutch, and showed how fields were won. Pleased with his guests, the good man learned to glow, And quite forgot their vices In their woe ; Careless their merits or their faults to scan, His pity gave ere charity began.

Pagina 132 - Statesman, yet friend to truth ; of soul sincere, In action faithful, and in honour clear ! Who broke no promise, served no private end, Who gained no title, and who lost no friend; Ennobled by himself, by all approved, Praised, wept, and honoured by the Muse he loved.

Pagina 330 - Fer the world is full of roses, and the roses full of dew, And the dew is full of heavenly love that drips fer me and you.
Pagina 117 - I think that to have known one good old man — one man who, through the chances and rubs of a long life, has carried his heart in his hand, like a palm branch, waving all discords into peace, helps our faith in God, in ourselves, and in each other, more than many sermons.
