Halaman 184 - There was a time when meadow, grove, and stream, The earth, and every common sight, To me did seem Apparelled in celestial light, The glory and the freshness of a dream. It is not now as it hath been of yore; — Turn wheresoe'er I may, By night or day, The things which I have seen I now can see no more.
Halaman 206 - BE kind to each other! — The night's coming on, When friend and when brother Perchance may be gone...
Halaman 209 - As sweet as heaven designed it; Nor need we roam to bring it home, Though few there be that find it ! We seek too high for things close by, And lose what nature found us ; For life hath here no charm so dear As Home and Friends around us ! We oft destroy the present joy For future hopes — aud praise them ; Whilst flowers as sweet bloom at our feet, If we'd but stoop to raise them...
Halaman 182 - Motionless torrents! silent cataracts! Who made you glorious as the Gates of Heaven Beneath the keen full moon? Who bade the sun Clothe you with rainbows? Who, with living flowers Of loveliest blue, spread garlands at your feet? — God! let the torrents, like a shout of nations, Answer! and let the ice-plains echo, God!
Halaman 219 - "Thy kingdom come," still from the ground, That child-like voice did pray; "Thy kingdom come," God's hosts resound, Far up the starry way! " Thy will be done," with little tongue, That lisping love implores; "Thy will be done," the angelic throng Sing from seraphic shores!
Halaman 248 - NAY, speak no ill ! — a kindly word Can never leave a sting behind, And, oh ! to breathe each tale we've heard Is far beneath a noble mind.
Halaman 211 - mid the tempest loud, That still its sweet way wins — As springs an arch across the tide, AVhere waves conflicting foam, So comes this seraph to our side, This angel of our home. What may this wondrous spirit be, With power unheard before — This charm, this bright divinity ? Good temper — nothing more ! Good temper ! — 'tis the choicest gift That...
Halaman 209 - If we'd but stoop to raise them ! For things afar still sweetest are When youth's bright spell hath bound us ; But soon we're taught...
Halaman 259 - WE are told to look through Nature Upward unto Nature's God; We are told there is a Scripture Written on the meanest sod; That the simplest flower created Is a key to hidden things; But, immortal over Nature, Mind, the lord of nature, springs...
Halaman 12 - tis of the soul The noblest element, the spirit-bond That links the angel with humanity. As well might' st thou attempt to purchase heaven, To vend the stars, make traffic of the skies, Or measure out what is immeasurable, As count each feeling in the pulse of love...
