MARGARET JUNKIN PRESTON
American poet
(1820 - 1897)

Her smile was prodigal of summery shine,--
  Gaily persistent,--like a morn in June
    That laughs away the clouds, and up and down
      Goes making merry with the ripening grain,
        That slowly ripples,--its bent head drooped down,
          With golden secret of the sheathed seed.
      - [Smiles]

In the vale beneath the hill
  The evening's growing purple strengthens.
      - [Twilight]

O Nature, gracious mother of us all,
  Within thy bosom myriad secrets lie
    Which thou surrenderest to the patient eye
      That seeks and waits.
      - [Nature]

The pure memories given
  To help our joy on earth, when earth is past
    Shall help our joy in heaven.
      - [Memory]

There is no to-morrow; though before our face the shadow named so stretches, we always fail to o'ertake it, hasten as we may.
      - [Tomorrow]

Gracious as sunshine, sweet as dew
  Shut in a lily's golden core.
      - Agnes [Lilies]

Pain is no longer pain when it is past.
      - Old Songs and New--Nature's Lesson [Pain]

Whoso lives the holiest life
  Is fittest far to die.
      - Ready [Holiness]

The lotos bowed above the tide and dreamed.
      - Rhodope's Sandal [Lotuses]

White as the blossoms with the almond tree,
  Above its bald and leafless branches bears.
      - The Royal Preacher [Almonds]
