Pagina 129 - LADY. SWEET stream, that winds through yonder glade, Apt emblem of a virtuous maid — Silent and chaste she steals along, Far from the world's gay busy throng ; • With gentle yet prevailing force, Intent upon her destined course ; Graceful and useful all she does, Blessing and blest where'er she goes.
Pagina 97 - And merciless ravage ; and the shady nook Of hazels, and the green and mossy bower, Deformed and sullied, patiently gave up Their quiet being...
Pagina 97 - Tall and erect, with tempting clusters hung, A virgin scene! - A little while I stood, Breathing with such suppression of the heart As joy delights in; and, with wise restraint Voluptuous, fearless of a rival...
Pagina 224 - Yet the joy of grief it is mine to bear ; I hear thy voice in the twilight air ; Thy smile, of sweetness untold, I see When the visions of evening are borne to me ; Thy kiss on my dreaming lip...

Pagina 100 - These glowing nuts are emblems true Of what in human life we view ; The ill-matched couple fret and fume, And thus in strife themselves consume. Or from each other wildly start And with a noise for ever part. But see the happy happy pair, Of genuine love and truth sincere, With mutual fondness while they burn, Still to each other kindly turn ; And as the vital sparks decay Together gently sink away ; Till life's fierce ordeal being past, Their mingled ashes rest at last.
Pagina 80 - If hitherto we have not said we loved, Yet hath the heart of each declared its love By all the tokens wherein love delights. We heretofore have trusted in each other, Too wholly have we trusted to have need Of words or vows, pledges or protestations. Let not such trust be hastily dissolved.
