  CHECK READING LIST (1)    << Prev Page    Displaying page 9 of 9

The flowering moments of the mind
  Drop half their petals in our speech.
      - To My Readers (st. 11) [Speech]

Stop not, unthinking, every friend you meet
  To spin your wordy fabric in the street;
    While you are emptying your colloquial pack,
      The fiend Lumbago jumps upon his back.
      - Urania--A Rhymed Lesson, l. 439 [Talk]

Yes, child of suffering, thou may'st well be sure
  He who ordained the Sabbath loves the poor!
      - Urania; or, A Rhymed Lesson (l. 325)
        [Poverty]

For you catch your next fish with a piece of the last.
      - Verses for After Dinner [Bait : Fish]

One flag, one land, one heart, one hand,
  One Nation evermore!
      - Voyage of the Good Ship Union--Poems of the Class of '29

  Fettered and chill is the rivulet's flow;
    Throbbing and warm are the hearts that remember
      Who was our friend when the world was our foe.
      - Welcome to the Grand Duke Alexis,
        referring to the fleet sent by Russia in Sep., 1863, an act with mixed motives,
        [War]
