1
    Hope is like a harebell, trembling from its birth,
Love is like a rose, the joy of all the earth,
Faith is like a lily, lifted high and white,
Love is like a lovely rose, the world’s delight.
Harebells and sweet lilies show a thornless growth,
But the rose with all its thorns excels them both.
          Hope is like a Harebell.

    My heart is like a singing bird.
          A Birthday.
3
    Better by far you should forget and smile
Than that you should remember and be sad.
          A Birthday.
4
    Remember me when I am gone away,
Gone far away into the silent land.
          Sonnet. Remember.
5
    All earth’s full rivers can not fill
The sea that drinking thirsteth still.
          By the Sea.
6
    One day in the country
Is worth a month in town.
          Summer.
7
    Silence more musical than any song.
          Sonnet. Rest.
