Page 97 - The day is done, and the darkness Falls from the wings of Night, As a feather is wafted downward From an Eagle in his flight. I see the lights of the village Gleam through the rain and the mist, And a feeling of sadness comes o'er me, That my soul cannot resist...

Page 101 - O happy bond, that seals my vows To Him, who merits all my love! Let cheerful anthems fill His house, While to that, sacred shrine I move.
Page 368 - Who stuffed that white owl?" No one spoke in the shop, The barber was busy, and he couldn't stop ; The customers, waiting their turns, were all reading The "Daily," the "Herald," the "Post," little heeding The young man who blurted out such a blunt question ; Not one raised a head, or even made a suggestion ; And the barber kept on shaving.
