Hens Nest

Among the orchard weeds, from every search,
Snugly and sure, the old hen’s nest is made,

She drops her head at every passer bye
Afraid of praise she hurries down the
And turns away from every smile she meets

Evening Primrose

от·
When once the sun sinks in the west,
And dewdrops pearl the evening's breast;
Almost as pale as moonbeams are,
Or its companionable star,

Early Nightingale

от·
When first we hear the shy-come nightingales,
They seem to mutter o’er their songs in fear,
And, climb we e’er so soft the spinney rails,
All stops as if no bird was anywhere

Through each old arch that trembled while I
Bent o'er its wall to watch the dashing

The fire curls up a sunny charm,
Where, creaming o'er the pitcher's rim,
The flowering ale is set to warm;

I Hid my Love

I hid my love when young till I Couldn't bear the buzzing of a fly; I hid my love to my despite Till I could not bear to look at light: I dare not gaze upon her face But left her memory in each place; Where'er I saw a wild flower lie I kissed and ...

Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely
