Seite 65 - I lift wee Jamie up the bed, An' as I straik each croon, I whisper, till my heart fills up, "O bairnies, cuddle doon." The bairnies cuddle doon at nicht Wi' mirth that's dear to me; But sune the big warl's cark an' care Will quaten doon their glee.
Seite 65 - Hae a' the weans been gude?" he asks, As he pits afF his shoon. "The bairnies, John, are in their beds, An
Seite 64 - Your faither's comin' in." They never heed a word I speak. I try to gie a froon; But aye I hap them up, an' cry, "Oh, bairnies, cuddle doon!" Wee Jamie wi' the curly heid— He aye sleeps next the wa'— Bangs up an' cries, "I want a piece"— The rascal starts them a'.
Seite 201 - He is made one with Nature: There is heard His voice in all her music, from the moan Of thunder, to the song of night's sweet bird. He is a presence to be felt and known In darkness and in light, from herb and stone, Spreading itself where'er that Power may move Which has withdrawn his being to its own...
Seite 64 - I rin an' fetch them pieces, drinks — They stop awee the soun' — Then draw the blankets up, an' cry, "Noo, weanies, cuddle doon!" But ere five minutes gang, wee Rab Cries oot, frae 'neath the claes, "Mither, mak' Tam gie ower at ance: He's kittlin' wi
Seite 51 - Well, the marriage was settled at last, and I was to stand by his side, Take a part in the happy rite, and pull from his hand the glove; And still as we joked between ourselves, he would say, in his manly pride, That the very ring of the engine-wheels had something in them of love. At length we had just one run to make before the bridal took place, And it happen'd to be in the night, yet merry in heart we went on ; But long ere he came to the house, he was turning each moment his face To catch the...
Seite 17 - And strike a chord that beat not unison With all this joy ; for from our dreams and smiles We shrunk, and, with a shadow in our eyes, We struck upon the cypress'd edge of death. Then solemn grew our converse, and she spoke In low sweet whispers, which to me were spells Of deeper quiet, as she strove to make A land wherein a great world moves like ours Distinct and clear to all the grosser eye; And simple as herself she painted heaven. She knew not, as she spoke, how all my heart Follow'd her words,...
Seite 111 - ... sings, When, as if thought and act were one, He came ; the gray on neck and wings Turn'd white against the happy sun. I knew his well-known sober flight, That boyhood made so dear to me ; And, blessings on him ! he stopp'd in sight, And sang where I could hear and see. Two simple notes were all he sang, And yet my manhood fled away ; Dear God ! The earth is always young, And I am young with it to-day. A wondrous realm of early joy Grew all around as I became Among my mates a bearded boy, That...
Seite 54 - An' tak' awa' wee Tam next door — I hear him screichin' oot. Dump, dump, awa' she gangs Back the road she cam', I hear her at the ither door, Speirin' after Tam; He's a crabbit, greetin' thing — The warst in a' the toon, Little like my ain wee wean — Losh, he's sleepin' soun'!

Seite 51 - At length we had just one run to make before the bridal took place, And it happen'd to be in the night, yet merry in heart we went on ; But long ere he came to the house, he was turning each moment his face To catch the light by the window, placed as a beacon for him alone. "Now then, Joe," he said, with his hand on my arm, "keep a steady look out ahead While I whistle for the last time ; " and he whistled sharply and clear ; But no light rose up at the sound ; and he look'd with something like dread...
