35 psl. - In your grey faces smiling — but like you The worse for weather. Here again I stand, Again and on the solitary shore Old ocean plays as on an instrument, Making that ancient music, when not known ! That ancient music, only not so old As He who parted ocean from dry land And saw that it was good. Upon...
36 psl. - Enough in action has my life been spent Through the past decade, to rebate the edge Of early sensibility. The sun Rides high, and on the thoroughfares of life I find myself a man in middle age, Busy and hard to please. The sun shall soon Dip westerly,— ^b*it oh! how little like Are life's two twilights! Would the last were first -And the first last!
80 psl. - The tale was this: the wind, when first he rose and went abroad through the waste region, felt himself at fault, wanting a voice: and suddenly to earth descended with a wafture and a swoop, where, wandering volatile from kind to kind, he wooed the several trees to give him one.
80 psl. - He wooed the several trees to give him one. First he besought the ash ; the voice she lent Fitfully with a free and lashing change Flung here and there its sad uncertainties : The aspen next ; a fluttered frivolous twitter Was her sole tribute : from the willow came, So long as dainty summer dressed her out, A whispering sweetness, but her winter note Was hissing, dry, and reedy : lastly the pine Did he solicit, and from her he drew A voice so constant, soft, and lowly deep, That there he rested,...
153 psl. - The soften'd soul, of mild voluptuous ease And tender sports that chased the kindling hours In odorous gardens or on terraces To music of the fountains and the birds, Or else in skirting groves by sunshine smitten Or warm winds kiss'd, whilst we from shine to shade Roved unregarded.
87 psl. - Eternity a parte post et ante So drinks the refuse, thins the material fibre That lost in ultimate tenuity The actual and the mortal lineaments, The Church in Time, the meagre, definite, bare, Ecclesiastical anatomy, The body of this death translates itself, And glory upon glory swallowing all Makes earth...
1 psl. - God, thou'st given unto me a troubled being — So move upon the face thereof, that light May be, and be divided from the darkness ! Arm thou my soul that I may smite and chase The spirit of that darkness, whom not I But Thou through me compellest.
40 psl. - Fill'd with book-wisdom, pictured thought, and love That on its own creations spends itself. All things he understands, and nothing does. Profusely eloquent in copious praise Of action, he will talk to you as one Whose wisdom lay in dealings and transactions; Yet so much action as might tie his shoe Cannot his will command ; himself alone By his own wisdom not a jot the gainer. Of silence, and the hundred thousand things 'Tis better not to mention, he will speak, And still most wisely. — But, behold!...
24 psl. - Fight thy love-hattles whilst thy heart is strong, And wounds heal kindlily. An april frost Is sharp, but kills not ; sad October's storm Strikes when the juices and the vital sap Are ebbing from the leaf.
86 psl. - A radiance and a resonance from heaven Surrounds me, and my soul is breaking forth In strength, as did the new-created sun When earth beheld it first on the fourth day. God spake not then more plainly to that orb Than to my spirit now.
