Page 66 - Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil ; For thou art with me : Thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Page 68 - Lays her gentle hand in mine. And she sits and gazes at me With those deep and tender eyes, Like the stars, so still and saint-like, Looking downward from the skies. Uttered not, yet comprehended, Is the spirit's voiceless prayer, Soft rebukes, in blessings ended, Breathing from her lips of air. O, though oft depressed and lonely, All my fears are laid aside, If I but remember only Such as these have lived and died!
Page 68 - And with them the Being Beauteous, Who unto my youth was given, More than all things else to love me, And is now a saint in heaven. With a slow and noiseless footstep Comes that messenger divine, Takes the vacant chair beside me, Lays her gentle hand in mine. And she sits and gazes at me With those deep and tender eyes, Like the stars, so still and saint-like, Looking downward from the skies.
Page 74 - As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you ; and ye shall be comforted in Jerusalem.
Page 61 - I can hear in dreams the feet of your pony, You and your pony coming together. You will drive no more through the pleasant country. You were a part of the fields and mountains, Everyone knew you, everyone loved you, All the world was your friend and neighbour, The women smiled and the men approved you. They are not the same, the fields and the mountains. I sigh no more for the pleasant places, The longer I've lost you the more I miss you. My heart seeks you in dreams and shadows, In dreams I find...
Page 61 - You were a part of the green country Of the grey hills and the quiet places; They are not the same, the fields and the mountains, Without the lost and beloved .faces, And you were a part of the sweet country. There's a road that winds by the foot of the mountains, Where I run in my dreams and you come to meet me. With your blue eyes and your cheeks' old roses, The old fond smile that was quick to greet me.
Page 79 - That bird was perched, as fond and tame, And tamer than upon the tree; A lovely bird, with azure wings, And song that said a thousand things, And seemed to say them all for me!
Page 16 - I was utterly alone with the sun and the earth. Lying down on the grass, I spoke in my soul to the earth, the sun, the air, and the distant sea far beyond sight. I thought of the earth's firmness I felt it bear me up; through the grassy couch there came an influence as if I could feel the great earth speaking to me.
Page 61 - You were a part of the fields and mountains, Everyone knew you, everyone loved you ; All the world was your friend and neighbour, The women smiled and the men approved you. They are not the same, the fields and the mountains. I sigh no more for the pleasant places, The longer I've lost you the more I miss you. My heart seeks you in dreams and shadows, In dreams I find you, in dreams I kiss you, And wake, alas ! to the lonely places.
Page 66 - The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. He maketh me lie down in green pastures, He leadeth me beside the still waters.
