Էջ 66 - The phantom flood of dreams has ebbed and vanished with the dark, And like a dove the heart forsakes the prison of the ark ; Now forth she fares through friendly woods and diamond-fields of dew, While every voice cries out " Rejoice ! " as if the world were new. This is the ballad the Bluebird sings, Unto his mate replying, Shaking the tune from his wings While he is flying : Surely, surely , surely, Life is dear Even here. Blue above, You to love, 'Purely, purely, purely.
Էջ 3 - It is to the fifth of these Sayings of Jesus that the following poem refers. THE TOILING OF FELIX I PRELUDE HEAR a word that Jesus spake Eighteen hundred years ago, Where the crimson lilies blow Round the blue Tiberian lake: There the bread of life He brake, Through the fields of harvest walking With His lowly comrades, talking Of the secret thoughts that feed Weary souls in time of need.
Էջ 5 - Rolls its summer flood of green, Rolls its autumn flood of red, — There the word the Master said Written on a frail papyrus, scorched by fire, wrinkled, torn, Hidden in God's hand, was waiting for its resurrection morn. Hear the Master's risen word! Delving spades have set it free, — Wake ! the world has need of thee, — Rise, and let thy voice be heard, Like a fountain disinterred.

Feasting plentiful and fine, Air that cheers the heart like wine, Royal pleasures by the score, Wait for me in Labrador. There I'll build my dainty nest ; There I'll fix my court and rest ; There from dawn to dark I'll sing: Happy kingdom! Lucky king! II. Back again, my little king ! Is" your happy kingdom lost To that rebel knave, Jack Frost ? Have you felt the snowflakes sting?
Էջ 26 - This is the gospel of labor, ring it, ye bells of the kirk! The Lord of Love came down from above, to live with the men who work.
Էջ 67 - And just one spray of lilac still a-bloom beside the well; The columbine adorns the rocks, the laurel buds grow pink, Along the stream white arums gleam, and violets bend to drink. This is the song of the Yellowthroat, Fluttering gaily beside you; Hear how each voluble note Offers to guide you : Which way, sir? I say, sir, Let me teach you, I beseech you! Are you wishing Jolly fishing? This way, sir/ I'll teach you.
Էջ 53 - And then He asked her once again, " What hearest thou ? What means the voice of Life ? " She answered, " Love ! For love is life, and they who do not love Are not alive. But every soul that loves, Lives in the heart of God and hears Him speak.
Էջ 68 - I'll teach you. Then come, my friend, forget your foes, and leave your fears behind, And wander forth to try your luck, with cheerful, quiet mind; For be your fortune great or small, you'll take what God may give, And all the day your heart shall say,
