الصفحة 96 - Bright as a star that brightens 'gainst the night. When forth she came the sunftner day was dimmed, For all its sunshine sank into her hair, Its azure in her eyes. The princely man Lord of a happiness unknown, unknown, Which cannot all be known for years and years — Uncomprehended as the shapes of hills When one stands in the midst ! A week went by, Deepening from feast to feast ; and, at the close, The...
الصفحة 157 - ... head and died ; And by that dying did He wash earth white From murders, battles, lies, ill deeds, and took Remorse away that feeds upon the heart Like slow fire on a brand. From grave He burst, Death could not hold Him, and ere many days Before the eyes of those who did Him love He passed up thro' yon ocean of blue air Unto the heaven of heavens, whence He came. And there He sits this moment man and God ; Strong as a God, flesh-hearted as a man, And all the uncreated light confronts With eyelids...
الصفحة 185 - A duek burst away from its breast, And before the bright circles and wrinkles Had subsided again into rest, At a clear open turn of the roadway My passion went up in a cry, For the wonderful mountain of Blaavin Was bearing his huge bulk on high, Each precipice keen and purple Against the yellow sky.

الصفحة 69 - ... brings its hero and heroine after a variety of moving incidents : — " She heard, and, all untouched by virgin shame, False and unworthy then, erect she stood Before her father and her brethren seven, Pale as her robe, and in her cloudless eyes Love, to which death and time are vapory veils That hide not other worlds, and stretched a hand, Which Edwin held, and kissed before them all In passionate reverence; smitten dumb by thanks And noble shame of his unworthiness, And sense of happiness o'erdue....
الصفحة 106 - And ere they went, In Bertha's fragrant bosom lay asleep The sweetest babe that ever mother blest, — A helpless thing, omnipotently weak ; Naked, yet stronger than a man in mail— That, with its new-born struggling sob and cry, Softened the childless palace, and unsealed Fountains of love undreamed of. Tenderness Made every arm a cradle, every voice Soft as a cradle-song.
الصفحة 136 - In the bright Fringe of the living sea that came and went Tapping its planks, a great ship sideways lay, And o'er the sands a grave procession paced Melodious with many a chaunting voice. Nor spear nor buckler had these foreign men ; Each wore a snowy robe that downward flowed ; Fair in...
الصفحة 183 - Blaavin, rocky Blaavin, How I long to be with you again, To see lashed gulf and gully Smoke white in the windy rain, — To see in the scarlet sunrise The mist-wreaths perish with heat, The wet rock slide with a trickling gleam Right down to the cataract's feet; While...
