Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919)Edit

Quotes reported in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919).
  • I know—yet my arms are empty,
    That fondly folded seven,
    And the mother heart within me
    Is almost starved for heaven.
    • Are the Children at Home.
  • Never yet was a springtime,
    Late though lingered the snow,
    That the sap stirred not at the whisper
    Of the southwind, sweet and low;
    Never yet was a springtime
    When the buds forgot to blow.
    • Awakening.
