Página 122 - Jim-Dog He wasn't, well, a fancy kind o' dog — Not Jim! But oh, I sorter couldn't seem ter help A-lovin' him He always seemed ter understand.

Página 87 - For only then did I dare to stop! I stood on the summit gazing down, And the earth looked sordid and dull and brown, And neutral-tinted and neutral-souled ; And all of life seemed a story told, And the only spot that was bright to see Was a patch of green that had bloomed for me Where a garden lived in a spring long fled, When Love stood smiling — But love was dead!
Página 106 - I would forget the wounded heart you gave me, I would forget the bruises on my soul. My old-time gods would rise again to save me; My dreams would grow supremely new and whole. What though youth lay, a tattered garment, o'er you? Warm words would leap upon my lips, long dumb; If you came back, with arms stretched out before you, And told me, dear, that you were glad to come! MARGARET E. SANGSTER...
