And so we come back to the morning on which Yolande was standing at the entrance to the hotel, waiting for her father to read his letter. When he had ended, he came along briskly to...
Page 67 - And could you really discover, In gazing those sweet beauties over, No other charm, no winning grace, Adorning either mind or face, But one poor dimple to express The quintessence of loveliness ? — Marked you her cheek of rosy hue ? That eye, in liquid circles moving ; That cheek abashed at man's approving...
Page 185 - ... the words a curiously pathetic quality ; and she had the natural gift of knowing what particular airs she could make tell. , She laid her hand on Yolande's arm — as if to ask for attention — " The sun rises bright in France, And fair sets he; But he has tint the blink he had In my ain countrie.
