Robed in the long night of her deep hair.
      - [Hair]

Seeming genial, venial fault.
      - [Proverbs]

She only said, My life is dreary,
  He cometh not, she said;
    She said I am aweary, aweary,
      Oh God, that I were dead.
      - [Proverbs]

Should banded unions persecute
  Opinions, and induce a time
    When single thought is civil crime,
      And individual freedom mute,
        . . . .
          Then waft me from the harbour's mouth,
            Wild wind, I seek a warmer sky.
      - [Proverbs]

So sad, so fresh, the days that are no more.
      - [Past]

Stared in her eyes and chalk'd her face.
      - [Fear]

Strong of his hands, and strong on his legs, but still of his tongue.
      - [Proverbs]

Sweet girl graduates, in their golden hair.
      - [Hair]

Sweet is every sound,
  Sweeter thy voice, but every sound is sweet;
    Myriads of rivulets hurrying through the lawn,
      The moan of doves in immemorial elms,
        And murmuring of innumerable bees.
      - [Sound]

Sweet is true love, though given in vain.
      - [Love]

That which we are, we are . . . .
      - [Self]

The far-off interest of tears.
      - [Proverbs]

The flower she touched on dipped and rose.
      - [Feet]

The fools of habit.
      - [Proverbial Phrases]

The garden of the mind.
      - [Mind]

The grand old name of gentleman
  Defam'd by every charlatan
    And soil'd with all ignoble use.
      - [Gentlemen]

The mystery of folded sleep.
      - [Sleep]

The parting of a husband and wife is like the cleaving of a heart; one half will flutter here, one there.
      - [Parting]

The Queen, who sat
  With lips severely placid felt the knot
    Climb in her throat, and with her feet unseen
      Crushed the wild passion out against the floor.
      - [Proverbs]

The shadow cloak'd from head to foot,
  Who keeps the keys of all the creeds.
      - [Death]

The silent snow possessed the earth, and calmly fell our Christmas-eve.
      - [Winter]

The slow, sweet hours that bring us all things good.
      - [Proverbs]

The tender grace of a day that is dead will never come back to me.
      - [Past]

The woman's cause is man's. They rise or sink together; dwarfed or godlike, bond or free; if she be small, slight-natured, miserable, how shall men grow?
      - [Equality]

There's no glory like his who saves his country.
      - [Love of Country]
