Lady Clara Vere de Vere, There stands a spectre in your hall : The guilt of blood is at your door : You changed a wholesome heart to gall.

Halaman 208 - Yet was I calm : I knew the time My breast would thrill before thy look ; But now to tremble were a crime — We met, — and not a nerve was shook.
Halaman 263 - Patience, and abnegation of self, and devotion to others, This was the lesson a life of trial and sorrow had taught her. So was her love diffused, but, like to some odorous spices, Suffered no waste nor loss, though filling the air with aroma.

Halaman 264 - God is good," in ecstasy she goes. Oh ! there are endless means and ways, some stormy and some sweet, Through which God's guiding hand conducts His favoured children's feet ; Thorns are in all, but some have few to tread down as they go, And every shrub or tree they pass its blossoms o'er them throw. The bleeding feet, the aching brow, the desert's scorching air, The tempter's lures, the inward strife, they are not doom'd 93 Which are most blest ? We dare not say.
Halaman 28 - Mary] — none but loving words be addressed to you. Let me rescue you from a tyranny that has embittered all your life. I do not ask you to love me as I love you. Few love thus. But let me be your husband.
Halaman 33 - Mankind is unco' weak and little to be trusted. When self the wavering balance shakes, 'Tis never right adjusted.
Halaman 92 - To thee the day-spring and the blaze of noon) The purple evening and resplendent moon, Shine not, or undesired and hated shine, Seen through the medium of a cloud like thine."— COWPER.
