(1825 - 1903)
 << Prev Page    Displaying page 2 of 2

With no companion but the constant Muse,
  Who sought me when I needed her--ah, when
    Did I not need her, solitary else?
      - Proem (l. 87) [Poets]

But let me silent be:
  For silence is the speech of love,
    The music of the spheres above.
      - Speech of Love (st. 4) [Silence]

Children are the keys of Paradise,
  They alone are good and wise,
    Because their thoughts, their very lives, are prayer.
      - The Children's Prayer [Childhood]

If there is anything that will endure
  The eye of God, because it still is pure,
    It is the spirit of a little child,
      Fresh from his hand, and therefore undefiled.
      - The Children's Prayer [Childhood]

No Caesar he whom we lament
  A Man without a precedent,
    Sent, it would seem to do
      His work, and perish, too.
      - The Man We Mourn Today [Lincoln, Abraham]

We grow like flowers, and bear desire,
  The odor of the human flowers.
      - The Squire of Low Degree--The Princess Answers
         (I, l. 13) [Desire]

Not that the heavens the little can make great,
  But many a man has lived an age too late.
      - To Edmund Clarence Stedman [Greatness]

She wears a rose in her hair,
  At the twilight's dreamy close:
    Her face is fair,--how fair
      Under the rose!
      - Under the Rose [Beauty]
