Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1905 edition. Excerpt: ... in thy nest Confessed! No storms, but the sunshine above Shall love; The clouds in the deep for thy bed, The trees for thy pillow, the sky overhead. Rest, rest Silver Lake, in thy nest, Confessed! LINES AND LINES Just a paper scribbled o'er, --Baby's tracings; nothing more. Just a letter from a son Outward bound; the years swift run.

Neither you nor I Till the by-and-by. To-day bright hopes, --the moon afloat, With the stars to light the way Through the purple depths, to the wondrous note That the sister planets play: To-morrow eclipse. With faith filled eyes, We will fathom the depths of the boundless skies And view the perfect day! DREAM LIFE When down the western dome the sun Smiles out the day with hope begun; When gilded clouds hang o'er the west Horizon's rim, the mountain crest; When twilight's calm enfolds the earth, And weary man seeks his home hearth; O, then, my heart a-homeward bent A moment revels iRead Less
