LONDON: RAVILL AND EDWARDS, PRINTERS, CHANDOS STRFET,
Stiff and stately :
A bud but lately.
1 A musician who has written a charming autobio
graphy. 2 A musician also, and, like my first, pure and happy. 1 “Mourns his spirit, anguish torn," 2 What his vessel is to the " sailor-born." 3 A shape ascribed to the god of day,
Or an emblem of empire, choose which you may. 4 I spring eternal in the human breast. 5 The moorhen 'midst my sedges builds her nest.
Over the notes your fingers may stray,
For I shall be absent, not present, to-day.
1 “Old Caspar took it from the boy,
Who stood expectant by;
And, with a natural sigh-
2 “Last noon beheld them full of lusty life,
Last eve in Beauty's circle proudly gay;
The morn the marshalling in arms,—the day
Battle's magnificently stern array ! * * * Rider and horse !—friend, foe !-in one red
burial blent !"
1 " For 'tis the hand we love the best
That deals the hardest
2 " Sure 'twas the clash of swords ! * * O Marcia, should thy brothers for
sake! I die with horror at the thought."
3 “He had lived for his love, for his country he died,
They were all that to life had entwin'd him, Nor soon shall the tears of his country be dried,
Nor long will his love stay behind him.”
4 Greater than the Rhine, Rhone, or Danube.
* * " A slow, vast volume of water, mild and beneficent as his statue in the Vatican."
5 “ When maidens such as die
Their place ye may not well supply,
With vain endeavour."
6 “A palace dedicate to him
Who on this day, the famed tenth of August, Slaughter'd-more cruelly than Swiss guard-fell
7 “Sly stab o' the tongue. 8 “ This little Principality,
The gamblers' home.”
Two modern heroines.
Gates of brass cannot withstand
On thy lips the smile of truth.”
And goodly creature ! Who will mount supreme
chafes Unto the golden gate, where quiet sits Grave matronhood."
1 An unhappy Stuart.
“ Mein Vater hat mich kaum geliebt."
1 “Named from him 'gainst whom I first was thun2 “I swear to thee by Cupid's strongest bow;
By all the vows that men have ever broke,
To-morrow truly will I meet with thec.” 3
" Hie thee hither That I may pour my spirit in thine ear.” 4 “Sports prepare, the bring,
Songs of triumph to him sing." 5 And I, of whom his eyes
had seen the proof At Rhodes, at Cyprus, and on other grounds,
Christen'd and heathen-must be-lee'd and calm'd." 6 “Behind the arras I'll convey myself, To hear the
process; 'Tis meet that some more audience than a mother, Since nature makes them partial, should o'erhear The speech of vantage."
1 “While of his hidden soul the sins he told,
Proud Alaric's descendant could not brook
That mortal man his bearing should behold.” 2 "King James within her princely bower,
Feasted the chiefs of Scotland's power.” 1 “And her hat with shady brim
Made her tressy forehead dim;
Praising God with sweetest looks."
Still question'd me the story of my life.” 3 “In dark fens of the swamp
The hunted negro lay.”
