Pagina 189 - SUNSET and evening star, And one clear call for me ! And may there be no moaning of the bar When I put out to sea...
Pagina 1 - A lily of a day Is fairer far, in May, Although it fall and die that night; It was the plant and flower of light. In small proportions we just beauties see; And in short measures life may perfect be.
Pagina 35 - Is lightened : — that serene and blessed mood, In which the affections gently lead us on, — Until, the breath of this co1poreal frame And even the motion of our human blood Almost suspended, we are laid asleep In body, and become a living soul : While with an eye made quiet by the power Of harmony, and the deep power of joy, We see into the life of things.

Pagina 153 - Though earth and man were gone, And suns and universes ceased to be, And Thou were left alone, Every existence would exist in Thee.
Pagina 190 - So here hath been dawning Another blue Day: Think wilt thou let it Slip useless away. Out of Eternity This new Day is born; Into Eternity, At night, will return.
