Page 53 - I REMEMBER, I REMEMBER. I REMEMBER, I remember The house where I was born, The little window where the sun Came peeping in at morn ; He never came a wink too soon. Nor brought too long a day ; But now I often wish the night Had borne my breath away ! I remember, I remember...
Page 388 - I loved Ophelia : forty thousand brothers Could not, with all their quantity of love, Make up my sum.
Page 382 - He raised a sigh so piteous and profound As it did seem to shatter all his bulk And end his being.
