Side 263 - THE groves were God's first temples. Ere man learned To hew the shaft, and lay the architrave.

Side 223 - Tis night, and the landscape is lovely no more ; I mourn, but, ye woodlands, I mourn not for you; For morn is approaching, your charms to restore, Perfumed with fresh fragrance, and glittering with dew: Nor yet for the ravage of Winter I mourn ; Kind Nature the embryo blossom will save.

Side 604 - HE who died at Azan sends This to comfort all his friends: Faithful friends! It lies, I know, Pale and white and cold as snow: And ye say, "Abdallah's dead!" Weeping at the feet and head. I can see your falling tears, I can hear your sighs and prayers; Yet I smile and whisper this: "/ am not the thing you kiss; Cease your tears, and let it lie; It was mine — it is not I.
