4931
    One of those heavenly days that cannot die.
          Nutting.
4932
    She dwelt among the untrodden ways
  Beside the springs of Dove,—
A maid whom there were none to praise
  And very few to love.
          She dwelt among the untrodden ways.
4933
    A violet by a mossy stone
  Half hidden from the eye;
Fair as a star, when only one
  Is shining in the sky.
          She dwelt among the untrodden ways.
4934
    She lived unknown, and few could know
  When Lucy ceased to be;
But she is in her grave, and oh
  The difference to me!
          She dwelt among the untrodden ways.
4935
    The stars of midnight shall be dear
To her; and she shall lean her ear
  In many a secret place
Where rivulets dance their wayward round,
And beauty born of murmuring sound
  Shall pass into her face.
          Three years she grew in Sun and Shower.
4936
    May no rude hand deface it,
And its forlorn hic jacet!
          Ellen Irwin.
4937
    She gave me eyes, she gave me ears;
And humble cares, and delicate fears;
A heart, the fountain of sweet tears;
  And love and thought and joy.
          The Sparrow’s Nest.
4938
    The child is father of the man. 1
          My heart leaps up when I behold.
4939
        The cattle are grazing,
    Their heads never raising;
There are forty feeding like one!
          The Cock is crowing.
