Page 76 - THE Frost looked forth, one still, clear night, And whispered, " Now I shall be out of sight ; So through the valley and over the height In silence...
Page 76 - I'll take my way. I will not go on like that blustering train, The wind and the snow, the hail and the rain, Who make so much bustle and noise in vain, But I'll be as busy as they...
