Seite 154 - Be it a weakness, it deserves some praise, We love the play-place of our early days. The scene is touching, and the heart is stone That feels not at that sight, and feels at none.

Seite 244 - And when the sun begins to fling His flaring beams, me, Goddess, bring To arched walks of twilight groves, And shadows brown that Sylvan loves...
Seite 72 - When first, a little one, I left my home, I can remember the first grief I felt, And the first painful smile that clothed my front With feelings not its own : sadly at night I sat me down beside a stranger's hearth, And, when the lingering hour of rest was come, First wet with tears my pillow.
