121. oldal - In some wild forest shade, Under some spreading oak, or waving pine, Or old elm, festooned with the gadding vine, Let me be laid. In this dim lonely grot, No foot intrusive will disturb my dust ; But o'er me songs of the wild birds shall burst, Cheering the spot.
122. oldal - But o'er me songs of the wild birds shall burst, Cheering the spot. Not amid charnel stones, Or coffins dark, and thick with ancient mould, With tattered pall, and fringe of cankered gold, May rest my bones ; But let the dewy rose, The snow-drop and the violet, lend perfume Above the spot where, in my grassy tomb, I take repose. Year after year, Within the silver birch tree o'er me hung, The chirping wren shall rear her callow young, Shall build her dwelling near. And ever at the purple dawn of day...

137. oldal - Where through the flowering greensward flows the brook, Sweet-smelling blooms their odorous leaves expand In every woody nook. The golden-berried waxwork weaves its wreath Of verdure ; and the clematis Shoots its soft fibres the thick boughs beneath ; And oft the...
143. oldal - Close its bright, scarce-opened eye, Blue as is the azure sky; Smooth those locks of flowing gold, Soon to tarnish in the mould ! Smooth the snowy funeral dress, Print the latest fond caress ; Close the lid, and spread the pall, Hither all the mourners call : Father ! kneel beside the bier, Mother ! drop the sparkling tear ; Brothers, sisters of the dead ! Let your partings now be said. Let the solemn preacher pray For the young soul flown away ! Bear the little coffin, then, From the noisy walks...
121. oldal - The celebrated WILSON, the ornithologist, requested that he might be buried near some sunny spot, where the birds would come and sing over his grave. This wish is most beautifully expressed in the following lines. The author is unknown to me.
