Page 481 - THE SEA. The Sea ! the Sea ! the open Sea ! The blue, the fresh, the ever free ! Without a mark, without a bound, It runneth the earth's wide regions 'round ; It plays with the clouds ; it mocks the skies ; Or like a cradled creature lies.
Page 109 - We get no good By being ungenerous, even to a book, And calculating profits . . so much help By so much reading.

This song of soul I struggle to outbear Through portals of the sense, sublime and whole, And utter all myself into the air...
Page 112 - And his mane listening. When the ended curse Left silence in the world,— right suddenly He sprang up rampant, and stood straight and stiff, As if the new reality of death Were dashed against his eyes, — and roared so fierce (Such thick carnivorous passion in his throat Tearing a passage through the wrath and fear) — And roared so wild, and smote from all the hills Such fast, keen echoes crumbling down the vales Precipitately, — that the forest beasts, One after one, did mutter a response...
