Página 11 - Now rings the woodland loud and long, The distance takes a lovelier hue, And drowned in yonder living blue The lark becomes a sightless song. Now dance the lights on lawn and lea, The flocks are whiter down the vale, And milkier every milky sail On winding stream or distant sea ; Where now the seamew pipes, or dives In yonder greening gleam, and fly The happy birds, that change...
Página 11 - Now fades the last long streak of snow, Now burgeons every maze of quick About the flowering squares, and thick By ashen roots the violets blow. Now rings the woodland loud and long, The distance takes a lovelier hue, And drown'd in yonder living blue The lark becomes a sightless song.

Music soothes us, stirs us up ; it puts noble feelings into us ; it melts us to tears, we know not how: — it is a language by itself, just as perfect in its way, as speech, as words ; just as divine, just as blessed.
Página 11 - DIP down upon the northern shore, O sweet new-year delaying long ; Thou doest expectant Nature wrong; Delaying long, delay no more. What stays thee from the clouded noons, Thy sweetness from its proper place ? Can trouble live with April days, Or sadness in the summer moons ? Bring orchis, bring the foxglove spire, The little speedwell's darling blue, Deep tulips dash'd with fiery dew, Laburnums, dropping-wells of fire.
Página 66 - But in singing you have both the wonders together, music and words.
