GEORGE L E ^^ I S O N ; 

OR, THE SCHOOLFELLOWS. 

THE noisy spaiTOws in our clematis 
Chatted of rain, a pensive summer dusk 
Shadinf the little lawn and ";arden-":round 
Between our threshold and the village-street ; 
With one pure stai', a lonely altar-lamp 
I a twilight's vast cathedral. But the clouds 
Were gravely gathering, and a fitful hreeze 
Flurried the \viudow-foliage that before 
Hung delicately })ainted on the sky, 
And wafted, showering; fi'om their ^'olden boss, 
The white-rose petals. 

On the garden side 
Our wall being low, the great Whiterose-l)Usli lean'd 
A thousand tend'.'r little heads, to note

George Levlsoit ; 



The doings of the vi!la<i-c all day long; 
From when the labourei's, tnidging to their toil 
In earliest sunshine, heaid tlie out])ost coeks 
Whistle a quaint refrain from tarni to liii'm, 
Till hour of shadow, silence, and repose, 
Tlie ceasing footstep, and the taper's light. 
Up tt) the churchyard rail, down to the; brool-;, 
And lifted fields beyond with grove and hedge. 
The Rose-bush gazed; and p(^opIe, as they pass'd, 
Aware of sweetness, look'd aloft in turn ; 
School-children, one arm round a comrade's neck. 
Would point to some rich cluster, and repay 
A flying bloom witli fair(!r glance of joy. 

In tliat warm twilight, certain }-cars ago, 
At sunset, -vvilli tlie roses in a trance. 
And many another blossom last a.sleej), 
One Flow'r ol' Flow'rs was closing like the rest. 
Night's ]i(;rald star which look'd across the world 
Saw iiotliing pi'cttii.'i' than our little chihl 
Sa\iuL!,' Ins evening |)i'ayei' at mother's knee, 
'i"'h(; while skirt f(;!ding on the naked feet, 
Too tendei' for rougli ways, his eyes al I'cst 
Oil his ni(»l]!ei''s fice, a window inio heaven. 
Ki^s"d now, and settled in his cot, he's pleased 



or, the SclioolfeUmcs. 19 

With murmuring song, until the large lids droop 
And do not I'ise, and slumber's regular breath 
Divides the soft round mouth. So Annie's boy 
And mine was laid asleep, I heard her foot 
Stir overhead ; and hoped there would be time 
Before the rain to loiter half an hour, 
As far as to the po})lars down the road, 
And hca)' the corncrakes tin'ough the meadowy vale, 
And watch the childhood of the virgin moon, 
Al)Ove that sunset and its marge of clouds 
A floating crescent. 

Sweetheart of my life ! — 
As then, so now ; nay, dearer to me now, 
Since love, that fills the soul, cx))ands it too, 
And thus it holds more love, and ever moi'c, — 

swcetlicart, helpmate, guardian, Ijctter self! 
Green be those downs and dells a])Ove tlie sea, 
Smootli-grecn for ever, by the ))lough unhurt. 
Nor overdrifted by tlieir neighbouring sands, 
"Where first I sav,- you; first :-ince long before 
When vre were children at an inland place 
And play'd together. I had often thought, 

1 wonder should I know tliat pleasiuit child? — 
Hfu'dly, I fear'd. 1 knew her the first gHuipse : 



20 George Lcvison ; 

While yot the flexile curvature of hat 

Kept all her face in shadow to the chin. 

And -when a breeze to which the harebells danced 

Lifted the sun a moment to her eyes, 

The ray of reco<i;nition flew to mine 

Through all the dignity of womanhood. 

Like dear old friends we wei'c, yet wondrous new. 

The others chatted; slie and I not much. 

Hearing her ribljon whirring in the wind 

(Xo doubting hopes nor whimsies l)orn as yet) 

"Was pure felicity, like his who slee])s 

Within a sense of some unknown good- fortune, 

True, or of dreamland, undetermined which ; 

jNIv buoyant s])irit tranquil in its joy 

As the wliite seamew swinging on the wave. 

Since, what vicissitude ! We read the })ast 

Bound in a volume, catch the story uj) 

At any leaf we choose, and much foi'get 

How eveiy blind to-morrow was evolved. 

How each oracular sentence shaj)ed itself 

For after compi'chension. 

Thus I mused, 
Then also, in tliat bui'icd summer dusk, 
Hicli heavy summer, upon autumn's verge, 



or, the Sclwolfelloics. 21 

INIy wife and boy in)staii's, I leaning grave 
Against the window ; and through favourite paths 
Memory, as one who saunters in a wood, 
Found sober joy. In turn tliat eve itself 
Rises distinctly. Troops of dancing moths 
Brush'd the dry grass. I heard, as if from far. 
The tone of passing voices in the street. 
Announced by cheerful octaves of a horn, 
Tliose rapid wheels flew, shaking our white-rose, 
That link'd us with the modern Magic- Way, 
And all the moving million-peopled world. 
For evei'v evenin<>' done our little daro- 
To keep the threads of life from tanglemcnt. 
In happy hour came in tlie lottery-bag, 
Whose messenger had many a prize for us : 
The multifarious page ephemeral, 
The joy at times of some brave book, whereby 
The world is richer ; and more special words. 
Conveying conjured into dots of ink 
Almost the voice, look, gesture that we knew, — 
From Annie's former house, or mine, from shore 
Of murky Thames, or rarer from hot land 
Of Hindoo or Chinese, Canadian woods, 
Ov that huge isle of kangaroos and gold,

One's ancient comi'ades scatter'd tlirouu-h the worhl. 

WJicre'sGeorgynow, 1 thought, our dread, our pride, 

Geoi'gc Levison, tlie sultan of the school I 

With Greek and Latin at those fingers' ends 

That sway'd the ^-inning oar and Ijat ; a prince 

In pocket-money and accoutrement; 

A Cribh in list, a Cicei'o in tonf;-ue; 

Already victor, when his eye should deign 

To iix on any summit of success. 

For, in liis haughty careless way, he"d hint —

Since tliosc okl school-times, not so far invaj-, 
Yet now Hkc pve-existcnce. Can tliat liovisc,

Or with a journey could I find them ail, 
And myself with them, as 1 used to 1)C? 
Sore Avas my battle after ([uitting these. 
N^o one thing- fell as plann'd for; soitows came 
And sat beside me ; years of toil AV(>nt round ; 
And victory's self A\'as j)ale and garlandless. 
Fog rested on my heart; till softly blew 
The wind that clear'd it. "Twas a simple turn 
Of life, — a miracle of heavenly love, 
For which, thank God ! 

When Annie calfd me u]i. 
We both bent silent, looking at our boy; 
Kiss'd unaware (as angels, may be, kiss 
Oood mortals) on tlie smoothly rounded cheek, 
TurnM from tlie window, whei'e a IHnge of leaves, 
With outlines melting in the darkening blue, 
Waver'd and pecp'd and whisper'd. Would she

Not yet a little were those clouds to stoop

Witli freshness to the garden and tlie field. 
1 waited by our open door ; -wliile bats 
riew silently, and rnusk gei'aniuni-leavcs 
Were fragrant in the twilight that had queneh'd 
Or tamed the dazzling searlet of their blooms. 
Peace, as of heaven itself, ])ossess"d jny heart. 
A Ibotstej), not the light stej) of my wife, 
Disturb'd it ; then, -with slacker pace, a man 
Came up beside the porch. Accosting Avhom, 
And answering to my name : " I fear,"' he said, 
" You'll hardly recollect me now ; and yet 
We were at school together long ago. 
Have you forgotten Georgy Levison !"

Excited, laughing, wiiiting for his iitce : 
The first fiash of the candles told me all : 
()■,•, if not all, (•nough, and more. Those eyes. 
^^'llen they look'd up at last, wei'e his Indeed, 
Jjut mesh'd in ugly network, hke a ^nai'e; 
And though his mouth preserved the imperious curve 
Invasion, vacillation, di>conTcnt,

or, the Schoolfelhnvs. 25 

From tliread-bare sleeves tlie witlier'd tremulous 

bauds 
Protruded. Why paint every toucli of blight? 

Tea came. Tie hurried into ceaseless talk ; 
(jrlauced at the ways of many foreign towns ; 
Knew all those men whose names are on the tongue, 
And set tlieir worths punctiliously; brought back 
Our careless years ; paid Annie compliments 
To spare; admired the pattern of the cups; 
Lauded the cream, — our dairy's, was it not? 
A country life was })leasant, certainly. 
If one could be content to settle down; 
And yet the city had advantages, 
lie trusted, shortly, miderneath his roof 
To practise hospitality in turn. 
But first to catch the roof, eh ? Ha, ha, ha ! 
That was a business topic he'd discuss 
With his old friend by-and-l)ye — 

For me, I lono^'d 
To hide my face and groan ; yet look'd at him ; 
()pj)0sing pain to grief, presence to tliought.

Did I forn-et my friend — my dcai' old friend ? 

Had I a coat to sj)are ? He had no coat 

But thiri one on his back; not one shirt — sec ! 

"l\vas all a nightmare; all ])lain wretched truth. 
And how to play j)liysician ? Where's the strength 
Repairs a slow self-ruin from without? 
The fall'n must clin)I) innumerahle steps, 
With humbleness, and diligence, and i)ain. 
How help him to the first of all that steep? 

Midnight was past. I had proposed to find 
A lodging near us; tor, to say the truth, 
I could not bid my wife, lor such a guest 
In such a jilight, ju'epare the little room 
We still cidl'd '' Emma's"' iVom my sister's name. 
Then with a sudden musteriuL;' up of wits, 
And ev'n a touch of his old self, that (juick 
Melted my heart anew, he signified 
His bed v.'as waiting, he would say good-night. 
And begg'd me not to stir, he knew his road. 
V)\\\ arm in arm 1 brought him up the sti'cet, 
Among the rain-])ools, and the pattering drops 
Drumming upon our canojjy; where few 



28 George I.tvlson ; 

Or none -wore out of doors ; and once or twice 
Some casement from an upper stoi'v slied 
Penurious lamplig-lit. 

Tediously Ave kept 
The morning meal in vain expectancy. 
Our box of clothes came back; the peop'le said 
He paid "without a word, and went his way, 
They knew not whithei'. lie return'd no more. 
lie now is dead. 

Througli all the summer-time 
The touch of that unhappy visit lay, 
Like trace of fi'ost on gardens, on our life. 
Great cities give events to every hour ; 
Not so that ancient villaiz-e, small, remote, 
Half-hid in Ijoscage of a peaceful vale, 
Willi guardian liills, but welcoming the sun, 
And every group of seasonable stars 
That rise upon the circle of the year: 
Oj)en to natural influence.-; far 
From jostling crowds ot' congregated men. 

That villaii'e also lies l)eliind u^ now ; 
Midst other tidds abide we, othi^r liices. 
Annie, my dai'ling, we were hajijix there, 
And Heaven continues lia])pin(— and hope 



or, the Schoolfellows. 29 

To us and to our children. May their steps 

Keep the good pathway tlirough this perilous world. 

That village is far-off, that year is fled. 

But still, at many a meditative hour 

By day or night, or with memorial flash, 

I see the ghost of Georgy Levison ; 

A shifting phantom, — now with hoyhood's face 

And merry curls ; now haggai'd and forlorn, 

As when the candles came into the room. 

One sells his soul ; another squanders it ; 
The flrst buys up the world, the second starves. 
Poor George was loser pal])al)ly enough ; 
Supernal Wisdom only knows how much.

Children's children round his knees ;

The fi'ravevard in the settina' sun. 

He seats him in a stony niche; 

The bell-rope sways within his reach ; 

High in the rafters of the roof 

The metal waixler hangs aloof; 

All the townsfolk wait to liear 

That voice they know this many a year. 

It is ])ast the ringing hour; 

There is silence in the tower ; 

Save that on a pinnacle 

A robin sits, and sings full v/ell.

As millstone round my neck, all my force tlul.

Went forth, and look'd u])on thy watery deep,

SIR HUGH DE LA POLE was a sturdy old

Vv ho ii) war and in peace had done every man rio'lit; 
Had lived with his neiuhbours in lovin<; accord, 
Save the Abbot and Monks, whom he fiercely ab- 

liorr"d, 
And to their feet alone refused oak-floor and sward. 



With LTuests round his table, good servants at call, 
His laughter made echo the wide castle-hall ; 
He \\]iooi)"d to the falcon, he hunted the de(,'i'; 
If down by the Abbey, his comrades could he;ir —

And s})eeds to the giUc wliich repclTd him so long; 
Tlie stair (^' Pax vobiscum !") is strange to his tread;

And the sparlv from beneath the white eyebrow is

Whei'e pallid and stern lies the well-beloved face.

His bones fell to dust. You may still n.-ad the name,

And now, tliis new October, 

Within a holy <xarden, 

'Mid flowers and trees and crosses, 
When dusk be;2;ins to fall, — 

Where linden leaves are paling, 

And poplar leaves are gilded, 

And crimson is tlie wild-vine 
That hangs across the wall, — ■ 

I see the little temple 

Wherein, with dtist of princes, 

The body lies of Goethe, 
And may not move at all. 

He mark'd all changes of the yeai' ; 
He loved to live ; he did not fear 
The never-broken silence here. 

Slow foots the grey old Sexton, 
The ducal town's Dead-watcher. 
Attendinf»' day and night time 

A bell that never rings ; 
The corpse upon the pallet, 
A thread to evciy finger,— 
The sliditest touch would sound it, 

But silence broods and clings.

The day had glooiird and drizzled, 

But eleav'd itself in partin*^, 

The hills were soft and hazy, 
Fine colours streak'd the west, 

(Above that distant ocean) 

And Weimar stood before nie, 

A dream of half my lifetime, 
A vision for the rest : 

The House that fronts the fountain, 

Tlie Cottage at the woodside, — • 

Long since 1 surely knew them, 
But still, to sre was best.

But all tir inhabitants I greet

LET us not toacli and prracli ?o much, 
But eliorisli, rather tliau profess ;

Of God, and Love, aiul Holiness, —

Look straio'lit at all thiii'js from the soul, 
But boast not much to understand ; 

Make each new action sound and "whole, 
Tlien leave it in its ])lace unscann'd : 

Be true, devoid of aim or care; 

rs'or posture, nor antatjonise : 
Know well that clouds of this our air 

But seem to wrap the mi<i'hty skies : 

Search starry mysteries overhead, 

Where wonders u'leam ; yet bear in mind 

That Earth "s our planet, firm to tread, 
\or in the star-dance left behind : 

For nothinij; is withheld, be sure, 
Our being needed to have shown ; 

The far was meant to be obscure. 

The near was placed so to be known.

But through Himalayan dells, 
Where the silveiy pinnacles

And there's a blossom first was seen 
In a dragon-vase of \yliite and green 
13y the sweetheart of a mandarin, 
Winking her little eyes for bliss. 

Look, how these merry insects go 
In rippling meshes to and fro, 
Waltzing over the liquid glass, 
Dropping their shadows to cross and travel. 
Like ghosts, on the pavement of sunny gravel, 
INIaybe to music, whose thrills outpass 
Our finest ear, — yes, even youi's. 
Whom the mysticism of sound allures 
From star to stai'. In this gulf beyond, 
Silent pco])le of the ])ond 
Slip from noonday u'lare, to win

How little of their life we know ! 

Or these birds' life that twittering dart 

To the shrubbery's woven heart. 

Which is happier, bird or fish ? 

Have tliey memory, hope, and wish ? 

Vai'ioiis temper ? perverse will ? 

Tlie secret source of boundless ill. 

Why should not Juiman creatures run 

A careless course througli shadow and sun ? 

Ah, Love, that may never be ! 

We are of a diffl-rent birth, 

Of deeper sjdiere than the fishes' home, 

Higher than bird's wings may I'oam, 

Greater than ocean, air, and earth.

'Twere only toil in vain ; foi-, look —

On a pillow of Avood-sorrel sleeping:

Given to this delicate Avai-den's keeping, — 
Jasmin, that deserves to stay

And much will conu' that we cannot "'uess ; 
Every minute hrings its chance.

Whose phantoms, of desire or dread, 
Like foo;s and shades and dreams are fled." 



III. THROUGH THE WOOD. 

" A fire keeps burning in this breast. 
The smoke ascending to my brain 
Sometimes stupefies the pain. 
Sometimes my senses drop, no doubt. 
I do not always feel the pain : 
Bat ni}' liead is a weary weary load. 
What ])lace is this ? — I sit at rest, 
With grass and buslies round aljout ; 
Xo dust, no noise, no endless road, 
No torturing light. Stay, let me think, 
Is this the place wliere I knelt to drink. 
And all my hair broke loose and fell 
And floated in the cold clear well 
Hung with rock-weeds? two children came 
With pitchers, but they screani'd and ran ; 
The woman stared, the cursed man 
Laugh'd, — no, no, this is not the same. 
T now remember. Draim'ing through 



72 Southwell Park. 

The thorny fence has toi'n my <j,'own. 
These boots are very nearly done. 
What matter? so "s my journey too. 

Nearly done ... A quiet spot ! 
Flowers toucli my hand. It's summer now. 
What summer meant I had forg'ot ; 
Except that it was glaring hot 
Through tedious days, and heavy hot 
Through dreadful nights. 

This drooping bough 
Is elm ; the shadow lies below. 
Gathering flowers, we used to creep 
Along the hedgerows, where tlie sun 
Came through like this ; then, every one, 
Find out some ai'hour close and cool, 
To weave them in our rushy ca])S, — 
Primi'oscs, bluebells, such a hea]). 
The cliildren do so still, perhajjs. 
Some, too, were quite tall girls. 

You fool ! 
Was it tor this you made your way 
To Soutliwell Pai'k by night and day? 
— A million times I used to sav 



SoutliwcU Park. 73 

These two words, lest tliey niit;lit be lost : 

After a wliile, turn where I wouUl 

I heard them. . . . This is his domain ; 

Each tree is his, each blade of grass 

Under my feet. How dare I pass, 

A tatter'd vagrant, half insane, 

Scarce lit to slink by the roadside. 

These lordly bounds, where, with his Bride — 

I tell you, kneeling on this sod, 

He is, before the face of God, 

My liusband ! 

I was innocent 
TJie day 1 first set eyes on him, 
Eyes that no tears had yet made dim, 
Nor fever wild. The day he went, 
(That day, O God of Heaven !) 1 found. 
In the sick brain slow turning round, 
Dreadful forebodings of my fate. 
A week was not so long to wait : 
Another pass'd,— and then a third. 
My face grew thin — eyes fix'd — I heard 
And started if a feather stirr'd. 
Each night ' to-morrow !' Iicard me say. 
Each mornintr ' he will come to-dav.' 



74 Soutliwell Park. 

Who taps u])on the chamber door? — 
A letter — he -svill come no more. 
Then stupor. Then a horrid sti'ii'e 
Trampling my 1)rain and soul and life, — 
Hunting me out as Avith a knife 
From home — from home — 

And I was young, 
And liappy. May his heart be wrung 
As mine is ! learn that even I 
Was something, and at least can die 
Of such a wound. In any case 
He'll see the death that's in my face. 
To die is still within the power 
Of girls with neither rank nor dower. 

This is Southwell. I am here. 
The house lay that side as one came. 
How sick and deadly tired I am ! 
Time has been lost : O this new fear, 
That I may fill aiid never rise ! 
Clouds come and go within my eyes. 
I 'm hot and cold, my lind)s all slack, 
^Iv swollen feet the same as d^ad ; 
A weiu'lit like lead draws down my head, 



Sduthwell Park. 75 

The bou<2;hs and brambles pull me back. 

Stay : tlie wood opens to the hill. 

A moment now. The liouse is near. 

But one may view it closer still 

From these thick laurels on the right. 

. . . What is this? Wlio come in sight ? 

He, with his Bride. It sends new might 

Through all my feeble body. Hush ! 

Which way ? which way ? which way ? that bush 

Hides them — they're coming — do they pause ? 

He points, almost to me ! — he draws 

Her tow'rds him, and I know the smile 

That's on his face — O heart of guile ! 

\o, 'twas the selfish gaiety 

And arrogance of wealth. I see 

Your Bride is tall, and graceful too. 

That arch of leaves invites you through. 

I follow. Why should I be lotli 

To hurt her? . . . Ha! I '11 find them both. 

Six words suffice to make her know. 

Both, both shall hear— it must l)e so."

" Seven years li'one, and we togetlier 
Raml)le as before, old Ned ! 
Not a brown curl on your head 
Soil'd with touch of time or weatlier. 
Yet no wonder if you fear'd, 
With that broad chest and bushy l)eard, 
Lucy might scarce remember you. 
My letters, had they painted ti'ue 
The child grown woman ? 

Hero's our way. 
Autumn is in its last decay ; 
The hills have misty solitude 
And silence; dead leaves droj) in the wood. 
And free in Southwell Park v>'e stray, 
Where only the too-much freedom baulks. 
These half-obliterated walks, 
The tangling gi'ass, the shrubberies choked 
Witli briars, the runnel which hris soak'd 
Its lawn-foot to a marsh, bctwcjcn 
The tre;K;h(;rous tuits of brighter green, 
The garden, ])l;inn"d with costly cure, 
N^ow wilder'd as a nuiniac's hair; 



Southicell Park. 11 

The hlhidcd mnnsion's constant <ilooni, 
Winter !uul summer, night and day, 
Save when the stealthy hours let fall 
A sunbeam, or more pallid I'ay, 
Crce])ing' across the floor and wall 
From solitary room to room, 
To pry and vanish, like the rest, 
AVeary of a useless quest; 
The soniln'e face of hill and grove. 
The very clouds which seem to move 
Sadly, he it swift or slow, — 
How unlike this, you scarcely know, 
Was Southwell Park seven years ago. 

Human Spirits, line by line, 
Have left hereon tlieir visible trace; 
As may, methinks, to Eye Divine, 
Human history, and each one's share. 
Be closely written everywhere 
Over tlu! solid planet's iace. 

A sour old Witch, — a surly Youth, 
Wvr grnudson,- — three great dogs, uncouth 
To stJ-in^'ers (I 'm on terms with all), 
Are housi-hol'l now. Sometimes, at tidl 
Of dusk, a Shiipe is said to move

Soutliwcll Park. 



Amid the drear entanuled ^rovc, 
Or seems lameiitiiigly to stand 
Beside a ])ool that "s close at liand. 
Rare are the human steps tliat pass 
On mossy walk or tufted grass. 

Let 's force tlie brusliwood barrier, 
No path remaining. Here 's a chair ! 
Once a cool delightful seat, 
Now the wai'ty toad's retreat, 
Cushion'd with fungus, sprouting rank, 
Smear'd widi the lazy gluey dank. 
No douljt the Gliost sits often there — 
A Female Shadow with wide eyes 
And dri])ping garnnnits. Tins way lies 
The pool, the little jileasure-lake, 
Which cost a pretty sum to make. 
Stoop foi' this ])ough, and see it now 
A disuuil solitai'y slough, 
Scummy, weedy, I'agged, rotten. 
Shut inj'ail, foi'so(»k, foi'gotten. 

]M()>t of the story you have heard : 
The lju\\(.'r ()i'I)liss at leiiii'lh ]ire])ared 
To the l;i>l hlussom, line ot' ^ildinii', 
(Xevei' such a <lainty Iniildln'j) 



Suutliioell Park. 

One clay, Bride and Bridegroom came ; 
The hills at dusk with merry flame 
Crowning their welcome : they had June, 
Grand weather — and a honeymoon ! 
Came, to go away too soon. 
And never come again. 

Tlie Bride 
Was in her old home when she died, 
On a winter's day, in the time of snow, 
(She never saw that year to an end), 
And he has wander'd far and wide. 
And look'd on many a distant hill. 
But not on these he used to know, 
Bound his Park that wave and hend. 
And people tliiidc he never will. 

Who can prohe a spirit's pain ? 
Who tell that man's loss, or gain ? 
How far he sinn'd, how far he loved, 
How much hy what befell was moved, 
If tliere his real happiness 
Began, or ended, who shall guess? 
Trivial the biographic scroll 
Save as a history of the soul, 
Perhaps whose mightiest events 



80 Southwell Park. 

Are dumb and secret incidents. 

A man's true lite and Instory 

Is like the bottom of the sea, 

Where mountains and huu'e valleys hide 

Below the wrinkles of the tide, 

Under the peaceful mirror, under 

Billowy Ibani and tempest-thunder. 

Rude is the liower-shi'ubs' ovcrii'rowth, 
Dark Irowns the clump of firs beyond. 
At twiliu'ht one miuht well be loth 
To liuLi'er here alone, and find 
The stoiy vivid in one's mind.

And saw tlie ^'irl herseli^ — yes, wc I 
Skirting tlie coppice — that was She. 

Iniau'ine (tins at least is known) 
Tlie frantic ci'oatare's pluno'e ; the bride

And liini, alone, and not alone, 
Turning auliast from each to eacli, 
Shouting' for lielp, but none in reach. 
He sees the drowning woman sink, 
Twice — thrice — then, headlong from the brink. 
He drays her to the grass — too late. 
Ther(} iiy his servants was he found, 
Bewildcr'd by tlie stroke of fate ; 
With two j)ale figures on the ground. 
One in the chill of watery death, 
( )ne with long-drawn painful breath 
Reviving. Suddni was the blow, 
Di'oadt'ul and deep the chanue. We go

THE LITTLE DELL. 

OLEFUL^vas the land, 
Dull on every side, 
Neither soft nor grand, 

Barren, hleak, and wide; 
Nothing look'd with love ; 

All was dingy brown ; 
The very skies above 

Seem'd to sulk and frown. 

Plod<ling sick and sad. 

Weary day on day : 
Searching, never glad, 

Many a miry way ; 
l.^oor existence lagg'd 

In this barren place ; 
While the seasons draii'g'tl 

Slowlv o'er its fiee.

Came bet'ore I ^■ucs.s"(l : 
Then one day 1 found 

A valley, like a nest ! 
GiKU'dcd with a spell 

Sure it must have ])ecn — 
This little fairy dell 

Whieh I had never seen. 



Open to the l)lue, 

Green l)anks henim'd it round 
A rillet \va!ider"d thn>ui;li

Thii Little Dell. 87 

J3cetles in tlie moss 

Journey'd here and there ; 
Butterflies across 

Danced t]n'ouii,h sunlit air. 

There I often redd, 

SuuLi' alone, or dream'd ; 
Blossoms overhead, 

Where the west wind strcam'd ; 
Small horizon-line, 

Smoothly lilted up. 
Held this world of mine 

In a grassy cup. 

The barren land to-day 

Hears my last adieu : 
Xor an hour I stay ; 

Eai'th is wide and new. 
Yet, fai'ewell, f irewell I 

^lay the sun and show'rs 
Bless that Little Dell 

Of safe and ti'aiKjuil hours !

A WIFE. 

THE wife sat tliouglitfully turniiit^ over 
A l)ookinscril)ecI witlitliescliool-g'irrsname; 
A tear, one tear, fell hot on the cover 

So quickly closed ^vhen hci' hushand came. 

1I(! c;iiii(> and he went away, it was nothing-; 

With connnonplace words upon either side ; 
Hut, just with the sound of the room-door shutting, 

A dreadful door in her soul stood wide. 

Love sIh' had read of in sweet I'omaiu^es, 
Love that could sorrow, luit nevei' fail ; 

Hiult her own ])alace t)f noble fancies. 
All tlie wide world like a iiury-tale. 

Hk'ak and hittei- and uttci'ly dolei'id 
Spread to this wonnin lu'r map of life: 



A Wife. 89 

Hour after lioiir she look'd in her soul, full 
Of deep dismay and turbulent strife. 

Face in hands, she knelt on the carpet ; 

The cloud was loosen'd, the storm-rain fell. 
O ! life has so much to wilder and warp it, 

One j)oor heart's day what poet could tell .'

And winter mantles edged with furs, 
And servants at her least command. 
And wealthy suitors for her hand.

HIS TOWN. 

FAR-OPF Town my memory Iiauiits- 
Siiut in by fields of coni and flax. 
Like housinLi's <i,'ay on elephants 

Heaved on the hnge hill-backs. 

How pleasantly that image came ! 

As down the zigzag road I press'd, 
Blithe, but unable yet to claim 
His I'oot'lVom all the rest. 

And i should see my Friend at Iiouk/, 

i'e in the little town at last 
Those v.-eleoine letters dated I'rom, 
(jladdening the two years past. 



iC*4 His Town. 

1 recollect the summer-light, 

The bridge with poplars at its end, 
The slow brook turning left and right, 
The greeting of my fi'iend. 

1 found him ; he was mine, — his Ijooks, 
His home, his day, his favourite walk, 
The joy of swift-conceiving looks, 
The wealth of living talk. 

July, no doubt, comes briglitly still 

On blue-eyed flax and yelloAving wheat 
liut soi'i'ow shadows vale and hill 
Since one heart ceased to beat. 

Is not the climate colder ihere, 

Since that Youth died ? — it must be so ; 
A dund) regi'et is in the air; 
The brook r(>j)ines to iiow. 

Wing'd tlrithcr, i'ancy oidy sees 

An old eliui'ch on its I'ising ground, 
And undci'iKjath two sycamon; trees 
A little u'ras^v mound.

Till the dark is rent asunder. 
And the gulf of li^ht is spread. 

Shadows were the gyves that bound him, 
Now his soul is light in light; 

Heav'n within him, Heav'n around him, 
Pure, eternal, infinite.

ADIEU to Ballysliannon ! Avherc I was bred 
and born ; 
do wlierc I may, I'll think of you. as sure as night 

and morn, 
The kindly spot, tlie friendly town, where everi 

one is known. 
And not a face in all tlie place but partly seems my 

own ; 
There's not a house or window, there's not a field 

or hill, 
But, cast or wesr, i;i foreign lands, ["11 recollect 

them still.

When the trout is rising to the fly, the sahnon to

Farewell Coolmoi'e, — Bundoran ! and your summer 

crowds that run 
From inland homes to see with joy th" Atlantic- 
setting sun ; 
To breathe the buoyant salted air, and spoil among 

the waves ; 
To gather shells on sandy beach, and tempt the 

gloomy caves ; 
To watch the flowing, ebbinu' tide, the boats, the 

crabs, the fish ; 
Youn'4' men and maids to meet and smile, and form 

a tender wish ;

Farewell to every white cascade from the Harbour 

to Bclleek, 
And every pool where fins may rest, and ivy-shaded 

creek ; 
The sloping- fields, the lofty rocks, where ash and 

holly grow. 
The one s]ilit yew-tree gazing on the curvino- 

flood below ; 
The Lough, that winds through islands under 

Turtiw mountain green ; 
And Castle CaldwelFs stretching woods, with 

tranquil bays between ; 
And Broesie Plill, and many a pond among the 

heath and fern, — 
For I must say adieu — adieu to the winding banks 

of Erne ! 

7. 

Th(^ thrusli will call through Carnlin groves the

The waters run by mossy cliff', and bank with wild 

flowers gay ; 
The girls will brino- their work and sing beneath

to cast 
My golden anchor in the place where youthful

Though lieads that now are black and brown must 

meanwhile gatlier grey, 
New faces rise by every lieartli, and old ones drop 

away — 
Yet dearer still that Irish hill than all the world 

beside ; 
It's home, sweet home, where'er I roam, through 

lands and waters wide. 
And if the Lord allows me, I surely will return 
To my native Ballyshannon, and the winding 

banks of Erne.

GRIEVE i!Ot mucli for loss of wealth, 
Loss of friends, or loss of fame, 
Loss of years, or loss of health; 

Answer, hast thou lost the shame 
Whose eai'ly trenioi' once could flush 
Tliy cheek, and make thine eyes to gush, 
xVnd send thy s])lrlt, sad and sore, 
To kneel with fice u})on the floor, 
Burden'd with consciousness of sin ? 
Art thou cold and hard within, — 
Sometimes lookini;' back surprised 
On thy old mood, scarce recognized, 
As on a picture of thy face 
In l)looming childhood's transient grace .' 
Then hast thou cause for grief; and most 
In seldom missinir what is lost.

A Dream of a Gate. 123 

Bv sao;cst Poet imconceived. 

Fancy on fancy, half-believed, 

Forger how they have sprung from nought. 

I often ])ictured in my thought 

A Gate, whereof we speak and write ; 

And found the same at dead of night, 

Neither by moon nor lantern-light. 

3. 

It was, in dreaming truth, a Gate 
\'aster than kings go throngli in state, 
And |)ierced a black gigantic wall 
Immeasurably built. To all, 
Wide, without l^ar or valve, it stood. 
And I'ound it throng'd a Multitude, 
From every nation that has Inrth 
Between the snowy poles of Earth. 

4. 

As bursts the sunshine from a cave 
Of hiii'h cloud, over field and wave, 
Gne, like a man, but more than mortal, 
Radiantly issues from tlie Portal, — 
Realm within it sottly In'ight, 
Purple shadow and golden light.

Damnation. Falling thi'ongh a chasm of j)lack, 
I swiftly sunk thousands of miles therein. 
Soul grew incorpoi'ate witli gross wc'ight of sin, 
Death clung about my feet : let none d;iro track 
^Iv journey. But a I'ar Voice (tall'd me back. 
I breatlie this world's infatuating air, 
And trendde as I walk, ^Nlost men are bold — 
I'crchance through madness. () that I could hold 
One ])ath, noi' Avander to the fen, nor dare

THE ABBOT OF INXISFALLEN 

(A KILLARXKY LEGEND.) 
1. 

'T^TIE Abbot of Imnsfallen 

Awoke ere dawn of day ; 
Under the dewy green leaves 
Went he forth to pray. 

The hike around his island 

Lay smooth and dark and deep, 

And wra])t in a misty stiUness 
The mountains were all asleep. 

L(jw kneel'd the Abbot Cormac, 
Wlien the dawn was dim and grey; 

Tin- prayers of his holy oihce 
lie faithfully 'tran sav. 



132 TJlc Ahhut of Inrdsf alien. 

Low knecTd the Abbot Cormac, 
When the dawn was waxing red; 

And I'oi' his sins' t'ovgiveness 
A solemn prayer he said: 

Low kncel'd tliat lioly Aidjot, 

When tlie dawn was waxing clear ; 

And he ])ray"d with loving-kindness 
For his convent-brethren dear. 

Low kneel'd that blessed Abbot, 

When tlie dawn was waxing bright ; 

lie jji'ayM a gi'eat pi'ayer tor Ireland, 
lie jii"iy"d witli all his miulit. 

Low kneeTd that good old Father, 
While the snn began to dart; 

lie pi'ayM a pi'ayer for idl mankind, 
He pi'ay'd it i'rom his heart. 



Th'' Abbot of Inni-liillcn 

.\rii.-c upon hi- feet ; 
lie liciird a small bird >ingiiig. 

And ( ) but it -luiL'' swt;et I 



The Abbot of Innis fallen. 13o 

lie heard a white bird siniriner well 

Within a holly-tree ; 
A son<i; so sweet and haj)j)y 

Never before heard he. 

It suni^ upon a hazel, 

It sung upon a thorn ; 
He had never heard such music 

Since the hour that he was born. 

It sung upon a sycamore, 

It sung upon a briar ; 
To follow the song and hearken 

This Abbot could never tire. 

Till at last he well bethought him ; 

He might no longer stay ; 
So he bless'd the little white singing-bird, 

And gladly went his M-ay. 

3. 

I?ut, wlien he came to his Abbey-walls, 
He found a wondrous change ; 

He saw no friendly iaces there. 
For every face was strano-e. 



1 34 The Abbot of Innhfaileii. 

The strange men spoke unto liim ; 

i^nd he heard from all and each 
The foreign tongue of the Sassenach, 

Xot wholesome Irish speech. 

Then the oldest monk came forward, 

In Irish tongue spake he : 
'' Thou wearcst the holy Augustine's dress, 

And who hath given it to thee?" 

" I wear the holy Augustine's dress, 

And Cormac is my name, 
The Abbot of this good Abbey 

liy grace of God I am. 

•' I \^■ent forth to pray, at break of day ; 

And wlien my jjraycrs wei'e said, 
1 licarkerfd awhile to a little 1iird, 

That sun^' above my head.'' 

Th(- monks to him made ansuer, 

" Two huiidi'cd ycai's have gone o'er, 
>\m-i- (jur Abbot Cormac went tlinjugh the gate, 
And never was heard of more. 



The Ahhot of IiDiirfallen. 135 

" Matthias now is ovir Abbot, 

And twenty have pass'd away. 
The stranger is lord of Ireland;

" Now give me absolution ; 

For my time is come," said he. 
And they gave him absolution, 

As speedily as might be. 

Tlum. close outside the window, 

The sweetest song they heard 
That ever yet since the world began 

Was utter'd by any bird. 

The monks look'd out and saw the bird. 

Its feathers all white and clean ; 
And there in a moment, beside it, 

Another white bird was seen. 

Those two they sang together. 

Waved their white wings, and tied ; 

Flew aloft, and vanish'd ; — 

But the ti-ood old man was dead. 



1 36 The Ahhot of InnisfaUen. 

They buried his blessed body 

Where lake and greensward meet ; 

A carven cross above his head, 
A lioliy-bush at his feet ; 

Where spreads the beautiful water 

To gay or cloudy skies, 
And the purple })eaks of Killarney 

From ancient woods arise.

SUNDAY BELLS. 

S^^'EET Sunday Bells ! your measured sound 
EnJianees tliat repose profound 
Of all the golden fields around, 
And range of mountain, sunsliine-drown'd. 

Amid the chister'd roofs outswells, 
And wanders up the winding dells, 
And near and far its message tells, 
Your holy song, sweet Sunday Bells ! 

Sweet Sunday Bells ! ye summon round 
The youthful and the hoary-crown'd, 
To one observance gravely hound ; 
Where comfort, strength, and joy are found. 

The while, your cadenced voice excels 
To waken memory's tender spells ;

And cliildhood's far-off' Suiulay Bell?. 

O Suiulay Bells ! your pleadin'j; sound 
The sliady sju'inu' of tears liatli found, 
In one whom neither pew nor mouiul 
May harbour in the hallow'd o-round : 

Wiiose heart to your old music swells; 
Whose soul a dee})er thouu'ht compels ; 
Who like an alien sadly dwells 
Within your chime, sweet Sunday Belh

" The sun is weak— to warm myself 
In a thick red tulip's core. 
Whither thou?" 

" Till day be o'er, 
To the dim and deej) snow-palace 
Of the closest lily-chalice, 
Where is veil'd the light of noon 
To be like my Lady's moon. 
Thou art of the day, I ween?" 

■' Yet I not disown our Queen. 
Nor at Lysc' am backward found 
When the mitjhtv feast comes round 



140 Two Fairies in a Garden. 

When She spreads aI)roa(l her power 
To proclaim a midnight hour 
For the pale blue fays like thee 
And the ruddy elves like me 
To mingle in a charmed ring 
With a perfect -welcoming ; 
Guarded from the moon-stroke cold, 
And wisp that scares us on the wold. 

" Swift that Xight is drawing near, 
When your abrupt and jovial cheer 
Mixes in our misty dance, 
Meeting else by rarest cliance. 
We love dark undew'd recesses 
Of the leafy M-ildernesses, 
Or to hide in some cold flower 
Shelter'd from the sunliu'lit hour, 
And more afliictive mortal eye."

Show ourselves to mortal sight 
Far more often ! — if they knew

Pays our service dimly wrought. 
Tlie paler favourites of the moon 
Cannot give nor take such boon !" 

•' Chantings, brother, liear you might, 

Softly sunfi' through still of night ; 

Calling from the Aveird North 

Dreams like distant echoes forth, 

Till through curtain'd shades they creep, 

To inlay the gloomy floor of sleep 

For babes, and souls that babe-like are : 

So we bless them from afar 

Like a faint but favouring star. 

— But tell me how in fields or bowers 

L'hou hast spent these morning hours?" 

" Through the tall hedge I have been, 
Shadowy wall of crusted green, 
Within whose heart the birds are seen.

With gentle loss that makes no pain.

The broad white moor, and sable stream below 
Blurr'd with grey smoke-wreaths wandering to

Cloiul without shape or colour, drooping slow 
Down all the sky, and chill sleet tor its hem ; — 
Such tiice of earth and time have I not watch'd 
In otliei' yeai's : why now my spii'it sinks.

Watch the farmer di<^ and sow 
In his miry fields below, 
Gravely follow in the furrows 
Picking where his ])lough unburrows. 
Pearl-white lambkins frisk and bleat 
Or kneeling tug the kindly teat; 
The I'Oguisli rat is creeping nigh 
His darksome cavern ; low and high, 
Through sun-gleam or soft rainy gloom. 
Like childi'on coursing every room 
Of a new house, the swallows glance, 
Wafted over Spain and France 
From the sultry solemn Nile's 
Mysterious lakes of crocodiles, 
x\nd the desert-lion's roar, 
To a greener gentler shore. 
Xative lark from stair to stair 
( )f 1)i'illiant cloud aiul azure air 
Mounts to tile morning's toj), and sings 
His meri'y hymns on trembling wings, 
Tireless, till the cressets hi^li

A I'i.-ino- tide ot' love and mirth.

'• Mirth is fled, and Love is dead," 
For chill and darkness on the day, 
As on my weak and weaiy spii'it lay ? 

Welcome, every breeze and show'r : 
Sun that courts the blossom ; 

Every new delicious flow'r 
Heap'd for Maia's bosom I 

Every bird ! — no bird alone, 

Always two to<_;x'ther ;

Flusijing' evei'y t'cather.

Away, dull musing ! who are these 
Under the fresh-leaved linden trees? 
Th]-ee favourite Children of the Spring, 
Who lightl}- run, as half on wing, 
Dorothy, Alicia, Mary ; 
Over moorlands wide and airy. 
Deep in dells of early flow'rs, 
They have been abroad for hours, 
Flow'rs themselves, and fairer yet 
Than primi'ose, windflow'r, violet, 
Oi' even June's wild-rose to come. 
Frost never touch their opening bloom 
The tender fearless life to check ! 
—Alicia's hat is on her neck, 
With Hying curls and glowing face 
And ringing laugh, she wins the race ; 
Her eyes were made for sorrow's cure, 
And doubts of Heav'n to reassure. 
\'(ils of iresh and fragrant rain 
Sinking over the green ])lain, 
Founts of simny beams that lie 
Seatter'd through the vernal sky, 
The million-fold expanding woods. 
Are less delightful than these children's moods.

And wandering wings, and footstep rare

Breathed to itself some twilight tune, 
And bliss had no alloy. 

Against the colours of the west 

Trees were standing tall and black : 

The voices of the day at I'est, 

Night rose around, u solemn flood. 

With fleets of worlds : and our delightful mood 

Rippled in music to the rock and wood; 

Music with echoes, never to come back. 

The touch upon my hand is this alone- — 

A heavy tear-drop of my own. 

Listen to the breeze : " O loitering; Time ! — 

" Unresting Time ! — O viewless rush of Time ! " 

Thus it calls and swells and tiills, 

From sunset's wasted ]ialace-walls, 

And u'hostlv mists that climb.

Among the Heather. 171 

But the winter 's coming fast, with its foggy, 

snowy weather, 
And you '11 find it bleak and chill on your hill, 

among the heather." 

3. 

She praised her mountain home : and I '11 praise it 

too, with reason. 
For v.iiere Molly is, there 's sunshine and flow'rs 

at every season. 
Be the moorland black or white, docs it signify a 

feather, 
Now I know the way by heart, every part, among 

the heather ? 

4. 

The sun o-oes down in haste, and the ni<2;ht falls 

thick and stormy ; 
Yet I 'd travel twenty miles to the welcome tliat 's 

before me ; 
Singing hi for Eskydun, in the teeth of wind and 

weather ! 
Love "11 warm me as I go through the snow, among 

the heather.

XLVI. 



TWO MOODS. 



SL()\y di'ap? this dreary season 
Tlie earth a himp of lead ; 
The vacant skies, blue skies or brown, 

Bereft of joy and hope. 

I cannot find a reason 

To --.s ish I were not dead,- 
L. nl'asten'd and let slide, uone down 

A diuiib and dusky slo])e. 
I recou'nize the look of cai'c 
In every fice; for now I sliare 
^^'hat makes a forehead wi'inkles wear, 

And sets a moutli to nio])e. 



A sombi'e, lanLi'uid yearninfj 
For silence and the dark: 



Tloo Moi,ds. 173 

Shall wish, or fear, or wisest word, 

Arouse me any more? 

Wliat profits bookleaf-turning ? 

Or ])rudent care and cark ? 
Or Folly's drama, seen and heard 

And acted as before ? 
No comfort for the dismal Day ; 
It cannot weep, or work, or pray ; 
A feehio pauper, sad and ^'rey, 

With no good thing in store. 

2. 

What lifts me and liti'litens ? 
Enriches and brightens 
'i'he day, the mere day, the most mai'vellous day ? 
(J pleasure divine ! 
An invisil)le wine 
Fours (piick through my beiny- ; broad Heaven is 

l)enign, 
And the Earth i'ull of woiulers, and botli of them 
mine. — 
Wliat fii'st shall I do, shall 1 say .' 
Si'c the bai'cliCiided frolicsome babes as they I'un 
Go skii)ping from iight ibot to left foot in fun, — 



174 Ticn Moods. 

"Tis the pleasure of livinir ; 

Too loiifj; I 've o'erlookM it, 

In sulk and misfxiving, 

And lunatic fret ; 

But it Avakes in me yet, 

Though the world has rebuked it : 
() city and country ! O landscape and sun ! 

Air cloudy or breezy, 

And stars, every one ! 

Gay voices of children ! 

All duties grown easy, 

All truths unbewild'ring, 
Since Life, Life immortal, is clearly begun I 



175 



XLVTI. 
MEA CULPA. 

AT me one night the angry moon, 
Suspended to a rim of cloud, 
Glared through the courses of the wind. 
Suddenly then my spirit bow'd 
And shrank into a fearful swoon 
That made me deaf and blind. 

We sinn'd — -we sin — is that a dream ? 
We wake — there is no voice nor stir ; 
Sin and repent from day to day, 
As tlioutrh some reeking; murderer 
Sliould dip his hand in a running stream, 
And lightly go his way. 

Embrace me, fiends and wicked men, 
For I am of yoiu' crew. Draw back. 
Pure women, children with clear eyes. 
Let Scorn confess mc on his rack, — 



176 Mea Culpa. 

Sti'Gtch'd down \)y force, uplooking; tlieii 
Into the >;olenin skies I 

Sinfrly we pass the o'k)(imy 'jate : 
Some roked in lionour, full of ])eace. 
Who of themselves ai'e not av-itre, 
Being fed with secret wickedness. 
And comfoi'ted with lies : my fate 
Moves fast ; I shall come there. 

With all so usual, hour by hour, 

And f(;eldc will so liuhtly twii'lM 

By every little breeze of sense. —

XLYIII. 
DOWN OX THE SHORE. 

1. 

DOWN on the shore, on tlic sunny shore ! 
Wliere the salt smell cheers tlie land ; 
Wliere the tide moves bright under boundless liglit, 

And the surge on the glittering strand ; 
Wh(!re the children wade in tlie shallow |)ools, 

( )r run from the frotli in ])loy ; 
Where the swift little boats with milk-white wings 

Are crossing the sapphire bay, 
And the ship in full sail, with a fortunate gale, 

Holds proudly on her way. 
Where the nets are spread on the grass to dry, 
And asl(;ep, hard by, the fishermen lie. 
Under the tent of the warm blue sky, 
With the hushing wave on its golden flooi' 
To sing theii' lullaby. 
>' 



178 



Down on the Sliore. 



2. 
Down on tlio shore, on the stormy shore ! 

Beset ]>y a <]!,-ro\vlin<i' sea. 
Whose mad waves leap on the rocky steep 

Like wolves up a traveller's tree. 
Whei'e the foam files wide, and an angry blast 

Blows the curlew otF, with a screech ; 
Where the brown sea-wrack, torn up by the roots, 

Is tlung out of fishes' reach ; 
Wliere the tall shi]) rolls on the hidden shoals. 

And scatters her planks on the beach. 
Whci'c slate and straw through the village spin. 
And a cottage fronts the fiercest din 
With a sailor's wife sitting sad within, 
Ileai'kening the wind and watC'r's ro;ir. 
Till at last her teai's beuin. 



179 



XLIX. 
TO THE NIGHTINGALES. 

1. 

XT'OU sweet fastidious Nightingales ! 
A The myrtle hlooms in Irisli vales, 
By Avondhu and rich Lough Lcne, 
Through many a grove and bo\yerlet green, 
Fair-mirror'd round the loitering skill". 
The purple peak, the tinted clifl', 
The fflen where mountain-torrents rave 
And foliage blinds their leaping wave, 
Broad emerald meadows lill'd with tlow'rs, 
ILndjosom'd ocean-bays are ours 
Witli all their isles; and mystic tow'i's 
Lonely and grey, deserted long, — 
Less sad if they might hear that perfect song I 



What seared ye? (ours, I think, of old ) 
The sond)re Fowl hateh'd in tlu; cold / 



180 To the Nhjhtingales. 

King- Henry's Normans, mailM and stern, 
Smiters of galloglas and kern ? 
Or, most and worst, fraternal feud, 
Which sad Icrne long hath rued? 
Forsook ye, when the Geraldine, 
(jreat chieftain of a glorious line, 
Was b.unted on his hills and slain, 
And one to France and one to Spain, 
The I'emnant of tlie race withdrew ? 
^^'as it from anarchy ye flew, 
And fierce oppi'cssion's bigot crew. 
Wild complaint, and menace hoarse, 
Misled, misleading voices, loud and coarse? 

3. 

Come l)ack, () Birds, — or come at last! 
Vov Ireland's furious days are past; 
And, ])urged of enmity and wrong, 
IJei' eye, her stcj), oi'ow calm and strong. 
Why sliould we miss that ])ui'e delight? 
IJi'iei'is tlie journey, switt the flight; 



•■ (;:il!iit;l:!S.-' — "■ kern,'" — trisli fuoi-soldicr : l\w. tir.st heavy 
iiniicil. tlu' secduil liiclit. 



To the NifiJitiiir/ales. 181 

And Hcsper finds no fairer maids 
In Spanish bow'rs or English glades, 
No loves more true on any shore, 
Xo lovers loving music more. 
Melodious Erin, warm of heart, 
Entreats you ; — stay not then apart, 
But hid the Merles and Throstles know 
(And ere another May-time go) 
Their place is in the second row. 
Come to the west, dear Nightingales ! 
The Rose and Mvrtle bloom in Irish vales. 



182 



THESE little Sonos, 
Found here and tlier* 
Floiiting in air 
By toi-cst and lea, 
Or liill-side heather. 
In houses and throng's. 
Or down by the sea,

By sun, moon, stars, 

Or a coal in the bars, 

In market or church, 

Graveyai'd or dance, 

When they came without search, 

Were found as by chance. 

A word, a line. 

You may say are mine ; 

But the best in the song's. 

Whatever it l)e, 

To you, and to me, 

And to no one belon"'s.

The First Copy-Book coiitiuns lAi-mrnfiirij turnx, with a b)'t)iul 
mark lil;e a T. wliich divides a well-formed turn into two eijti:il ])!irts. This 
exercise eu;ildes the learner to judfje offurm, distniirr, dnd priq/'irtii'd. 

The Secom) <'ontaiiis liinjc-linnd httrrf, and the means by wld(di snch 
letters may be ])roperly eotnldned ; the jniuinu-s in writing beinir ju-dhuldy ;!s 
(liiiicmlt to learn as tlie form ofeacdi cliaracter. This book also gives the whoie 
al])habet, not in sejiarate letters, Init I'ather as one vnnl ; and. at the end of 
the alphabet, the diiheult letters are rejieated so as to render t!ie WTitingol' the 
pupil more thorongh and unifjriii. 

Tlie Tmni) rontains additional lurijc-Jiand jn-nrfice. ■ 

The Fourth contains Inrji'-lin/vl iri.rds. co'ninencing with ini//'.iiri.~'!ii-'d 
capitals; ami the words being slu>rt. tlie ciipituls ni ijnesiinn receive the 
attention they demand. As Large, and I'.Ntra Large-text, to whicdi tin' fingers 
of the learner are not equal. h;i\e been di-iicnscd with in this series, tiie 
po]>iilar objection of having too nuiiii/ Oqty-linul.-x for the impil to drmige 
througli, is now fairly met. When letters are very large, the schol.ir canii: t 
compass them without stopping to change the j.osiiion of his hand, wliich 
di-'-^t'i'i::/-: t\if frfi'dijiii wliiidi such writing is inti'iided to jo'omote. 

"The FlKTiI c-ontains the essentials of a useful kind of xiiuill-hnnd . Tliere 
are first, as in hir-e-hand. ii\e easy letters of the alplialiet. foj-niing four 
copies, which of course are rejie.iled. Then filiows the remainder of ile- 
al jiiiabet, with the dithcult cdiaracters allnih-d to. The letters in this hand, 
er-pecially the a, c, (/,-/,/-, and '/, are so formed that wlien the learner will 
Innc to correspond, his writing will not ajipear still'. Tiie cc^]iies in this book 
are not ,iu rr /..ii-.f-li ,nd rrdwid. 

The Sixrii contains siii'i'l-li'i iid (■•■j;i/\^. with instructions as to tlie manner
