258 flower I have known from my infancy—their shapes and colours are as new to me as if I had just created them with a superhuman fancy. It is because they are connected with the most thoughtless and the happiest moments of our lives. I have seen foreign flowers in hothouses, of the most beautiful nature, but I do not care a straw for them. The simple flowers of our Spring are what I want to see again.”
INDEX OF FIRST LINES
As late I rambled in the happy fields.
Bards of Passion and of Mirth
Bright star ! would I were steadfast as thou art
Deep in the shady sadness of a vale
Fair Isabel, poor simple Isabel . - -
Give me a golden pen, and let me lean
Had I a man’s fair form, then might my sighs .
Hadst thou liv'd in days of old
In a drear-nighted December
Just at the self-same beat of Time's wide wings
Keen, fitful gusts are whisp'ring here and there
Lo! I must tell a tale of chivalry
Many the wonders I this day have seen
No, no, go not to Lethe, neither twist
Oft have you seen a swan superbly frowning
Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness . -
The poetry of earth is never dead
Upon a time, before the faery broods
What is more gentle than a wind in summer
Young Calidore is paddling o'er the lake
