Page 210 - THE trembling dewdrops fall Upon the shutting flowers ; like souls at rest, The stars shine gloriously ; and all, Save me, are blest. Mother, I love thy grave !

'Tis a sweet flower, yet must Its bright leaves to the coming tempest bow : Dear mother, 'tis thine emblem ; dust Is on thy brow. And I could love to die — To leave untasted...
Page 95 - it will be remembered that the American department was the poorest and least interesting of all foreign countries. Of late, it has justly assumed a position of the first importance, as having brought to the aid of our distressed agriculturists, a machine, which if it realizes the anticipations of competent judges, will amply remunerate England for all her outlay connected with the Great exhibition.
