An inadvertent step may crush the snail, That crawls at evening in the public path ; But he that has humanity, forewarned, Will tread aside, and let the reptile live. The creeping vermin, loathsome to the sight, And charged perhaps with venom, that intrudes, A visitor unwelcome, into scenes...
Pàgina 111 - The foolish fears of what might happen, I cast them all away Among the clover-scented grass, Among the new-mown hay, Among the husking of the corn, Where drowsy poppies nod Where ill thoughts die and good are born-- Out in the fields with God.
Pàgina 279 - AFOOT and light-hearted I take to the open road, Healthy, free, the world before me, The long brown path before me leading wherever I choose.
Pàgina 127 - Ane furme, ane furlet, ane pott, ane pek, Ane tub, ane barrow, with ane quheilband, Ane turs, ane troch, and ane meil-sek, Ane spurtill braid and ane elwand.
