Excerpt from book:
The sultan of the grey-fowl Convoking his haraam, And the moorcock on the heath-beds Joining chorus with the lamb. The weary and the cheery, The solemn and the sweet, The grating and the musical In our mountain voices meet. The screaming of the osprey, The clanging of the crane, The plaining of the sea-mew O'er the altars of the main : The rocky island altars, Where sacrifice is due, Of many a costly cargo, And many a gallant crew; Of many a shapely vessel Trimmed for the eyes' delight, Of many a venturous, seaman That has fought for Britain's right. Peep 1 playmate of the fairy ! From below your curtains coy; The pulses of the greenwood Are quivering with joy. From his frolics on the larch-top Ceases the pranksome squirrel, With perk'd car giving audience To the warbling of the merle ! The dormouse at its banquet, Upon the beechen mast, Turns dainty as it catches The carols chiming past: The carols of the song-birds— The music of the grove— The concord and the discord In the hymns of feather'd love. VIII. All that is best within us Confesses to the charm, For the joy of song is kindled In the forest and the farm. Warble! warble ! warble! Warble at your will ! Hearts and veins of marble Throb with every thrill. Carol! carol! carol! Happy lark and linnet! When your lay is ended Then again begin it. x. Warble ! warble ! warble ! Ousel and willow wren ! Who with joy have listened Will list with joy again— With joy and sweet regarding To the concert of the grove, To the blending streams of melody That flow from feather'd love. THE JILT; OR, FORTY YEARS AGO. I Looked into a loving face, A winning face with loving eyes ; Before me tripped a form of grace, So moulded t...

The sultan of the grey-fowl Convoking his haraam, And the moorcock on the heath-beds Joining chorus with the lamb. The weary and the cheery, The solemn and the sweet, The grating and the musical In our mountain voices meet. The screaming of the osprey, The clanging of the crane, The plaining of the sea-mew O'er the altars of the main : The rocky island altars, Where sacrifice is due, Of many a costly cargo, And many a gallant crew; Of many a shapely vessel Trimmed for the eyes' delight, Of many a venturous, seaman That has fought for Britain's right. Peep 1 playmate of the fairy ! From below your curtains coy; The pulses of the greenwood Are quivering with joy. From his frolics on the larch-top Ceases the pranksome squirrel, With perk'd car giving audience To the warbling of the merle ! The dormouse at its banquet, Upon the beechen mast, Turns dainty as it catches The carols chiming past: The carols of the song-birds The music of the grove The concord and the discord In the hymns of feather'd love. VIII. All that is best within us Confesses to the charm, For the joy of song is kindled In the forest and the farm. Warble! warble ! warble! Warble at your will ! Hearts and veins of marble Throb with every thrill. Carol! carol! carol! Happy lark and linnet! When your lay is ended Then again begin it. x. Warble ! warble ! warble ! Ousel and willow wren ! Who with joy have listened Will list with joy again With joy and sweet regarding To the concert of the grove, To the blending streams of melody That flow from feather'd love.
