Sida 151 - SUMMER set lip to earth's bosom bare, And left the flushed print in a poppy there: Like a yawn of fire from the grass it came, And the fanning wind puffed it to flapping flame. With burnt mouth red like a lion's it drank The blood of the sun as he slaughtered sank, And dipped its cup in the purpurate shine When the eastern conduits ran with wine...
Sida 293 - So passeth in the passing of a day Of mortal life the leaf, the bud, the flower; Ne more doth flourish after first decay, That erst was sought to deck both bed and bower Of many a lady and many a paramour ! Gather therefore the rose whilst yet is prime, For soon comes age that will her pride deflower ; Gather the rose of love whilst yet is time, Whilst loving thou mayst loved be with equal crime.
Sida 327 - ABOVE yon sombre swell of land Thou see'st the dawn's grave orange hue, With one pale streak like yellow sand, And over that a vein of blue. The air is cold above the woods ; All silent is the earth and sky, Except with his own lonely moods The blackbird holds a colloquy.

Sida 347 - But when the vigilant patrol Of stars walks round about the Pole, Their leaves, that to the stalks are curled, Seem to their staves the ensigns furled. Then in some flower's beloved hut Each bee as sentinel is shut, And sleeps so...
Sida 170 - The Hill: Breathless, we flung us on the windy hill, Laughed in the sun, and kissed the lovely grass, You said, "Through glory and ecstasy we pass; Wind, sun, and earth remain, the birds sing still, When we are old, are old. . . ." "And when we die All's over that is ours; and life burns on Through other lovers, other lips," said I, —"Heart of my heart, our heaven is now, is won!
Sida 76 - From morn to evening dews. He told of the magnolia, spread High as a cloud, high over-head ! The cypress and her spire, — Of flowers that, with one scarlet gleam, Cover a hundred leagues, and seem To set the hills on fire.
Sida 275 - To Autumn Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness, Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun...
