Amazing monster! that, for aught I know,
Open the window, and let the air

How sweet it were, if without feeble fright,
Death is a road our dearest friends have gone;
Translation of a Latin poem by Thomas Randolph
Robin and his merry men
Jenny kissed me when we met,
There is May in books forever;
It is a lofty feeling, yet a kind,
Robin Hood's mother, these twelve years now,

We, the Fairies, blithe and antic,
Reader! what soul that loaves a verse can see
King Francis was a hearty king, and loved a royal sport,
Paupertas onus visa est grave.
It flows through old hushed Egypt and its sands,
You strange, astonished-looking, angle-faced,
It lies before me there, and my own breath
Green little vaulter in the sunny grass,
