Seite 9 - We have laughed at little jests ; For the fount of hope was gushing, Warm and joyous, in our breasts ; But laughter now hath fled thy lip, And sullen glooms thy brow. We have been gay together : Shall a light word part us now ? We have been sad together ; We have wept, with bitter tears, O'er the grass-grown graves where slumbered The hopes of early years ; The voices which are silent there Would bid thee clear thy brow.
Seite 74 - Stern Lawgiver ! yet thou dost wear The Godhead's most benignant grace; Nor know we anything so fair As is the smile upon thy face: Flowers laugh before thee on their beds And fragrance in thy footing treads ; Thou dost preserve the stars from wrong; And the most ancient heavens, through Thee, are fresh and strong.
Seite 9 - WE HAVE BEEN FRIENDS TOGETHERWE have been friends together, In sunshine and in shade ; Since first beneath the chestnut- trees In infancy we played. But coldness dwells within thy heart— A cloud is on thy brow ; We have been friends together — Shall a light word part us now...
Seite 232 - So is it with true Christian hearts; Their mutual share in Jesus' blood An everlasting bond imparts Of holiest brotherhood: Oh! might we all our lineage prove, Give and forgive, do good and love, By soft endearments in kind strife Lightening the load of daily life...
Seite 48 - Egyptian truth : if not, she had unconsciously acted upon the unknown recipe, and had preserved herself in the sweetness of her disposition — in the honey of her goodness. She was a pattern old maid. Yet a pattern, we would hope, never to be followed ; for it is such women who make the real wives and mothers. Miss Lillywhite, like Miss Venus de Medicis, should remain a single perfection : alone in sweetness and beauty, to show what celibacy and art can do ; to be admired as samples, but never to...
Seite 278 - Fragments of plates, broken mortar, rags, and old hats, lay scattered around, all which bore a very uninviting aspect. The Angel pointed out in the midst of all this confused rubbish, some broken fragments of a flowerpot, and a clump of earth which had fallen out of it, and was only held together by the withered roots of a wild-flower, which had been thrown out into the street because it was considered utterly worthless. " We will take this with us," said the Angel ; " and I will tell thee why, as...
Seite 276 - Lo, all this did an Angel of God relate, whilst he bore a little child to Heaven ; and the child heard as if in a dream, and the Angel winged his flight over those spots in the child's home where the little one had been wont to play, and they passed through gardens which were filled with glorious flowers.
Seite 55 - exclaimed Angelina. " We returned home ; my lover upbraided — I retorted ; we had a shocking quarrel, and — he left the house to write me a farewell letter. In a week he was on his voyage to India ; in a twelvemonth he had married an Indian lady, as rich as an idol, and I — after thirty years — am still Caroline Lillywhite, spinster.
Seite 280 - ... and rejoiced the eye with their beauty ; and when the Lord called him hence, he turned, even in death, towards his cherished plant. He has now been a year with God — a year has the flower stood forgotten in the window, and now it is withered ; therefore has it been thrown out with the rubbish into the street. And this is the flower — the poor withered flower • — which we have added to our nosegay ; for this flower has imparted more joy than the rarest and brightest blossom which ever...
Seite 48 - Englishwoman, carried in her unfading beauty the assertion of her British race. How much triumphant beauty all over the world fades and yields, as teens blow into twenties, as twenties wrinkle into thirties ! Now, your truly beautiful Englishwoman, with her carnations and lilies, will carry her colors up to two-score-and-ten. Nay, we have known some veterans, blooming with a sprinkling of years over tyrannous fifty. And Miss Lillywhite was as jocund as she was handsome. It is said, there is no better...
