Page 106 - I'm slow and difficult of speech; With others I may guide the car of talk: Thou wing'st it oft to realms beyond my reach. If other guests should come, I'd deck my hair And choose my newest garment from the shelf: When thou art bidden, I would clothe my heart With holiest purpose, as for God himself. For them I while the hours with tale or song Or web of fancy fringed with...
Page 36 - None doubt the grandeur she has seen ; Upon her venerable front Is written : ' I was born a Queen ! ' She rules the age by Beauty's power, As once she ruled by armed might ; The Southern sun doth treasure her Deep in his golden heart of light. Awe strikes the traveller when he sees The vision of her distant dome, And a strange spasm wrings his heart As the guide whispers :

Lay the dead Christ beside me, Oh, press him on my heart, I would hold him long and painfully Till the weary tears should start; Till the. divine contagion Heal me of self and sin. And the cold weight press wholly down The pulse that.chokes within.
Page 106 - I'd deck my hair, And choose my newest garment from the shelf; When thou art bidden, I would clothe my heart With holiest purpose, as for God himself. For them I while the hours with tale or song, Or web of fancy, fringed with careless rhyme ; But how to find a fitting lay for thee, Who hast the harmonies of every time...
