    One more unfortunate
  Weary of breath,
Rashly importunate,
  Gone to her death.
          The Bridge of Sighs.
6099
    Take her up tenderly,
  Lift her with care;
Fashioned so slenderly,
  Young, and so fair!
          The Bridge of Sighs.
6100
    Alas for the rarity
Of Christian charity
  Under the sun!
          The Bridge of Sighs.
6101
    Even God’s providence
  Seeming estranged.
          The Bridge of Sighs.
6102
    No sun—no moon—no morn—no noon,
No dawn—no dusk—no proper time of day,
No warmth—no cheerfulness—no healthful ease,
No road, no street, no t’ other side the way,
No comfortable feel in any member—
No shade, no shine, no butterflies, no bees,
No fruits, no flowers, no leaves, no birds,
                November!
          November.
6103
    No solemn sanctimonious face I pull,
  Nor think I’m pious when I’m only bilious;
  Nor study in my sanctum supercilious,
To frame a Sabbath Bill or forge a Bull.
          Ode to Rae Wilson.
6104
    Each cloud-capt mountain is a holy altar;
  An organ breathes in every grove;
And the full heart ’s a Psalter,
Rich in deep hymn of gratitude and love.
          Ode to Rae Wilson.
6105
    His death, which happened in his berth,
  At forty-odd befell:
They went and told the sexton, and
  The sexton tolled the bell.
          Faithless Sally Brown.
6106
              That fierce thing
They call a conscience.
          Lamia. Scene vii.
