Page 115 - mid barren hills, Where winter howls, and driving rain; But, if the dreary tempest chills, There is a light that warms again. The house is old, the trees are bare, Moonless above bends twilight's dome; But what on earth is half so dear, So longed for, as the hearth of home? The mute bird sitting on the stone, The dank moss dripping from the wall, The thorn-trees gaunt, the walks o'ergrown, I love them, how I love them all...

Page 44 - Here lies a piece of Christ, — a star in dust, A vein of gold, — a china dish, that must Be used in heaven when God shall feed the just.
Page 50 - I blow the bellows, I forge the steel, In all the shops of trade; I hammer the ore, and turn the wheel, Where my arms of strength are made ; I manage the furnace, the mill, the mint ; I carry, I spin, I weave; And all my doings I put into print On every Saturday eve. I've no muscle to weary, no breast to decay, No bones to be laid on the shelf, And soon I intend you may go and play, While I manage the world by myself.
