James Wood, comp.  Dictionary of Quotations.  1899.
Mrs. Hemans
  Gird your hearts with silent fortitude, / Suffering yet hoping all things.  1
  Give me but / Something whereunto I may bind my heart; / Something to love, to rest upon, to clasp / Affection’s tendrils round.  2
  Leaves have their time to fall, / And flowers to wither at the north wind’s breath, / And stars to set; but all, / Thou hast all seasons for thine own, O death!  3
  Oh, call my brother back to me! / I cannot play alone; / The summer comes with flower and bee,— / Where is my brother gone?  4
  They grew in beauty side by side, / They fill’d one home with glee; / Their graves are sever’d far and wide, / By mount, and stream, and sea.  5
