Page 32 - Soldier, rest! thy warfare o'er, Sleep the sleep that knows not breaking; Dream of battled fields no more, Days of danger, nights of waking.

Page 101 - But a wooer that comes in braid day-light, Is no like a wooer that comes at e'en. He greeted the...
Page 28 - For me, thus nurtured, dost thou ask The classic poet's well-conn'd task ? Nay, Erskine, nay, on the wild hill Let the wild heath-bell flourish still ; Cherish the tulip, prune the vine, But freely let the woodbine twine, And leave untrimm'd the eglantine...
