Night brings out stars as sorrow shows us truths..
Not in the swaying of the summer trees..
O a wonderful stream is the river Time
O how much more doth beauty beauteous seem
Oh! the old clock of the household stock ...
Old fashioned, yes, I know they are
One morning, when Spring was in her teens-
Only the actions of the just.--.
On thy fair bosom, silver lake
O soul of mine, look out and see.
Our bugles sang truce, for the night-cloud had lower'd..
Our sweetest and most bitter hours are thine
Over hill, over dale.....
Over the river on the hill.
Over the river they beckon to me
Praise God, from whom all blessings flow
Precious and lovely, I yield her to thee
Reader, attend,—whether thy soul
Respect is what we owe; love what we give...
Ring on, ring on, sweet Sabbath bell.
Seated one day at the organ
See what a lovely shell
She walks in beauty, like the night..
Sing a low song!.
Sleep, sleep to-day, tormenting cares..
Slowly the night is falling
Softly fell the touch of twilight on Judea's silent hills
So live, that, when thy summons comes to join
Some beauties yet no precepts can declare
South Mountain towered upon our right, far off the river lay-.243
The Assyrian came down like a wolf on the fold
The Beautiful City! Forever
The curfew tolls the knell of parting day
The drying up a single tear has more
The splendor falls on castle walls..
The Spring is here-the delicate-footed May...
The surging era of human life forever onward rolls..
The touches of her hands are like the fall
The weary teacher sat alone
The world is full of glorious likenesses.
There is not in the wide world a valley so sweet
Thy love, dear heart, till closed thy lengthened years
"Till death us part"
"Tired!" Oh yes! so tired, dear..
Tis not in fate to harm me
To him who, in the love of Nature, holds..
Touch us gently, Time
Truth, crushed to earth, will rise again....
Twas the eve before Christmas; "Good night!" had been said.296
Two lovers by a moss-grown spring
Under the greenwood tree
Unhappy White, while life was in its spring.
Upon the sadness of the sea...
Utterer of many thoughts which else were still
Vital spark of heavenly flame...............
We all have waking visions-I have mine
Weary hearts! weary hearts! by cares of life oppressed.
What babe new-born is this..
What is noble? 'Tis the finer
What makes the time run short?..
Whatsoe'er of beauty---
What was he doing, the great god Pan
What would I have you do? I'll tell you, kinsman ...
When I consider how my light is spent
When to the sessions of sweet silent thought
Where the bee sucks, there lurk I..
Where the rocks are gray and the shore is steep.
"Which shall it be, which shall it be?".
Who has robbed the ocean cave---
Who will care?..
Wing'd mimic of the woods! thou motley fool.
"Woman!" With that word
Word was brought to the Danish king
When the humid shadows hover over all the starry spheres----304
When the song's gone out of your life
Wouldst thou from sorrow find a sweet relief...
"You have heard," said a youth to his sweetheart who stood... 18 You placed this flower in her hand, you say. You remember the time when I first sought your home...

An Instrument that Enables Deaf Persons to Hear Ordinary Con
The Audiphone is a new instrument made of a peculiar composition, possessing the property of gathering the faintest sounds (somewhat similar to a telephone diaphragm), and conveying them to the auditory nerve, through the medium of the teeth. The external ear has nothing whatever to do in hearing with this wonderful instrument.
It is made in the shape of a fan, and can be used as such, if desired.
When adjusted for hearing, it is in suitable tension and the upper edge is pressed slightly against one or more of the upper teeth.
Ordinary conversation can be heard with ease. In most cases deafness is not detected, it being generally supposed, as is the experience of the inventor, that th party deaf, is simply amusing himself with the fan.
The instrument also greatly facilitates conversation by softening the voice of the person using it, enabling--even in cases of mutes--the deaf party to hear his own words distinctly.
