Page 532 - Full fathom five thy father lies, Of his bones are coral made : Those are pearls that were his eyes, Nothing of him that doth fade, But doth suffer a sea change, Into something rich and strange.
Page 555 - I could a tale unfold whose lightest word Would harrow up thy soul, freeze thy young blood, Make thy two eyes, like stars, start from their spheres, Thy knotted and combined locks to part And each particular hair to stand on end, Like quills upon the fretful porcupine : But this eternal blazon must not be To ears of flesh and blood.
Page 753 - No ! for whoever with an earnest soul Strives for some end from this low world afar, Still upward travels, though he miss the goal, And strays but towards a star. Better than fame is still the wish for fame, The constant training for a glorious strife : The athlete nurtured for the Olympian Game, Gains strength at least for life.
Page 147 - Until righteousness turn again unto judgement : all such as are true in heart shall follow it. 16 Who will rise up with me against the wicked : or who will take my part against the evil-doers ? 17 If the Lord had not helped me : it had not failed but my soul had been put to silence.

Anon. GOOD-MORNING Good-morning, Brother Sunshine; Good-morning, Sister Song. I...
Page 41 - There is only one way out of the difficulty; and that is to rewrite the play as a West End theatre piece.
Page 291 - BRKATHER of hope upon the face that grieves, Reddener of paleness, mocker at despair, Playground of happy wings that upward fare, Lover of violets and sodden leaves, Of roses running to the cottage eaves, And hay fields sweetening in the sunny glare ; Companion of the heart that knows no care, And of the budding boughs and bursting sheaves ; Though armed with weapons of the icy north, Or red with dropping leaves or white with flakes, Or scorched with sun or wistful in the rain, Out of my cell your...
Page 147 - MY LOVER SAYS. HE says I should not give a glance To other men ; But 'tis no gift, for by some chance I'm sure to get one back again — Or two, or ten ; Besides, I only look to see If any of them look at me. He says I ought to see as through My lover's eyes ; But I...
Page 712 - I'm coming," he said; and dropped into the boat by Barracott's side. They pulled rapidly in toward the reef, the captain's eyes straining wide and full on the wreck, his head bent eagerly forward. The light was still dim when they drew close in to the wreck, and Angaray noticed the captain's hand on the gunwale of the boat, gripping it so tight that the knuckles stood out like ivory knobs, and he could see him shaking with nervous tremors. They passed close under the stern, which lay almost under...
