Сторінка 168 - HERE is a spark dwells deep within my soul. To get it out into the daylight's glow Is my life's aim both first and last, the whole. It slips away, it burns and tortures me. That little spark is all the wealth I know; That little spark is my life's misery.
Сторінка 195 - They danced as with bodies of tow set afire, All jumping like grasshoppers higher and higher, And heel it rang sharp upon stone. The coat-tails they fluttered, the aprons they flew, And braids were a-flapping and skirts flung askew, While the music would whimper and drone. Then in birch, or in alder, or hazel thicket There was whispering light as the chirp of a cricket From the depths of the darkness near.

Ye sleep now, ye sires, on the festival night, And stilled is the hand that could fiddle with might, For your life — like your day — is a murmuring song That echoes a wistful delight.

Сторінка 228 - I'd wallow, Give me but the blades that follow Melting snows in pine-dark hollow, And the earliest thrush's tune. Best the lover's time of waiting, Of betrothal ere the mating. Spring has naught so captivating As a secret sweetheart fair. Seldom with her, soon asunder, He will dream the strange wild wonder Life so soon for him may bear. Golden fruit, let others shake it, Mine be not the hand to take it, For my garden I'd forsake it When the trees are budding there.
