Pagina 106 - That the strongest wander farthest and most hopelessly are lost? That the mark of rank in nature is capacity for pain, And the anguish of the singer makes the sweetness of the strain ? "I have many things to tell you, but ye cannot bear them now.
Pagina v - Like as the waves make towards the pebbled shore, So do our minutes hasten to their end; Each changing place with that which goes before, In sequent toil all forwards do contend. Nativity, once in the main of light, Crawls to maturity, wherewith being crown'd, Crooked eclipses 'gainst his glory fight, And Time that gave doth now his gift confound.
Pagina 135 - Because Thou hast borne with me all this while, Hast smitten me with love until I weep, Hast called me as a mother calls her child — O Lord...
Pagina xiii - THE SONG OF THE CITY SPARROWS. WHEN the summer-time is ended, And the winter days are near ; When the bloom hath all departed With the childhood of the year ; When the martins and the swallows Flutter, cowardly, away, Then the people can remember That the sparrows always stay ; That, although we're plain and songless, And poor city birds are we, Yet, before the days of darkness We, the sparrows, never flee : But we hover round the window, And we peck against the pane, While we twitteringly tell them...

Pagina 136 - The darkness shall content my soul ;' •*• God said, ' Let there be light.' I said, 'The night shall see me reach my goal ;
Pagina 107 - Is it so, O Christ in heaven, that the fulness yet to come Is so glorious and so perfect, that to know would strike us dumb? That, if only for a moment, we could pierce beyond the sky With these poor dim eyes of mortals, we should just see God, and die? — " I have many things to show you, but ye cannot bear them now.
Pagina 47 - tis well, By the merry old games we played. There's a fellow asleep, the lout ! in the shade of the hillock yonder ; What a dog it must be to drowse in the midst of a time like this ! Why, the horses might neigh contempt at him ; what is he like, I wonder? If the smoke would but clear away, I have strength in me yet to hiss. Will, comrade and friend, We parted in hurry of battle ; All I heard Was your sonorous " Up, my men ! " Soon conquering paeans Shall cover the cannonade's rattle ; Then, home...
Pagina 300 - ARINER, what of the deep ? This of the deep : Twilight is there, and solemn, changeless calm; Beauty is there, and tender, healing balm, — Balm with no root in earth, or air, or sea ; Poised by the finger of God, it floateth free, And, as it...
Pagina 16 - And he answered — how well I can see him now, With the shade of the mountain across his brow ! — " There is never a longing the heart can know But a blessing shall fill it yet.
