Helen (Fiske) Hunt Jackson. (1830–1885)

    All lost things are in the angels’ keeping, Love;
No past is dead for us, but only sleeping, Love.
          At last.
7682
    Like a blind spinner in the sun,
      I tread my days:
I know that all the threads will run
      Appointed ways.
I know each day will bring its task,
And being blind no more I ask.
          Spinning.
7683
    On the king’s gate the moss grew gray;
  The king came not. They called him dead
And made his eldest son one day
  Slave in his father’s stead.
          Coronation.
7684
    Father, I scarcely dare to pray,
  So clear I see, now it is done,
How I have wasted half my day,
  And left my work but just begun.
          A last Prayer.
7685
    The voice of one who goes before, to make
The paths of June more beautiful, is thine
Sweet May!
          May.
 
Edward Robert, Earl of Lytton (Owen Meredith) Bulwer-Lytton. (1831–1891)
 
7686
    The world is filled with folly and sin,
  And Love must cling, where it can, I say:
For Beauty is easy enough to win;
  But one is n’t loved every day.
          Changes.
7687
    We may live without poetry, music and art;
We may live without conscience and live without heart;
We may live without friends; we may live without books;
But civilized man can not live without cooks.
