Like a woman's soft bosom it rose and it fell ; While its light sparkling waves, stealing laughingly o'er, When they saw the fair rainbow, knelt down on the shore.

الصفحة 223 - Heap high the farmer's wintry hoard ! Heap high the golden corn ! No richer gift has Autumn poured From out her lavish horn !
