Page 23 - ALAS ! how light a cause may move Dissension between hearts that love !

Page 49 - With heart never changing and brow never cold, Love on through all ills, and love on till they die...
Page 13 - Is broken by laughs and light echoes of feet From the cool, shining walks where the young people meet. — Or at morn, when the magic of daylight awakes A new wonder each minute, as slowly it...
Page 49 - And precious their tears as that rain from the sky,; Which turns into pearls as it falls in the sea. Oh ! think what the kiss and the smile must be worth, When the sigh and the tear are so perfect in bliss; And own if there be an Elysinm on earth, It is this, it is this.
