Deplore, ye Graces, Chloe's death deplore .
I care not to divert, still less I care
God 's not the word thou oftenest hear'st in Rome
Ás I muttered to myself once
Í

am the hare; thou, reader, art the lion .
Your gift 's the payment of a previous debt
Íf you don't know what 's a trúe friend
“Pshaw! the poetic breed 's extinct,” said once.
Sing ding-a-dong-ding, boys, sing ding-a-dong-ding
Weigh well thy judgment, thou that judgest me
Decide, kind critic, of what stock we are come
“True wisdom whát is 't?” Let me think. Trúe wisdom
“Halt! who goes there ?” the sentry cried
TO SELINA .
Fie! you've só ill writ my verses
Thou ask'st my counsel in this matter, friend
The wind said to the harp-string:

Softly thrill
IN THE ALBUM OF SIGNOR FRANCESCO BARTOLINI
LOUISA .
I sing the captain and the pious arms
TO LOUISA, ON OUR LEAVING PISTOJA, April, 1858
On a terrace of the Hradschin'.
JOHANNES LEIS, INNKEEPER ON THE BRENNER, Sept. 30, 1856
Their tombs stand on the Appian, with their names
Once on a time I made a great acquaintance
I wish you joy, sir, of a son and heir
Fifty years and five, and upwards .
Can you téll me, my fine little fellow, from what
Great big fishes have great big mouths .
The mighty puritan hoped, and he was right
IN EMMA NIENDORF'S (LA BARONNE SUCKOW's) ALBUM
I closed mine eyes and, lo! beside my couch
His lordship had too much drunk and saw double
Life is a walk along a colonnade .
CADI MEHASEB
The letters in the Book of Knowledge run
THEODORIC THE GOTH
WILLIAM AND EMMA
One womb maternal gave birth to two brothers .
TO ADDAH
Fear, in the evening born, and nursed all night

truelove: “Come, marry me.” "Keep the real Virgil far away,” said Dryden

There is a way to be beloved . .
TO SELINA ON THE FIRST OF JANUARY, WITH A JAR OF HONEY .
TO OVID DEPARTING FOR TOMI.
They call her Morning Red. She is a damsel
They call her Evening Gray. She is a matron
Begone, come near me not, O most profane'.
"Fool!" said the sensualist to the laborious .
All the whole world loves twaddle: "How do you know?”
In Error's wood there are a thousand paths .
"Judge me not, father!" said the ingenuous youth
The farmer's dairy and the poet's study
By Youth and Age alike, the present 's borne .
Old father Time brings truth to light
It 's true to the letter .
SNAP.
Sleep is a froward child who when you will

HOUSE
BYRON
“Wasting time!” time can't be wasted
Until it 's struck upon
Pretty Moon, whom I so often
A tap came to my bedroom door, one day
There was a time the world admired
THE CHAMOIS - HUNTER.
A rare, scarce yet acclimatized exotic
The old song still, the old song still

Whát race is it which a man runs

Eternal youth cannot be and was never

High on the spur’s alluvium - covered slope,
Above our heads it stands, upon the right,
Commanding wide the prospect of the valley
From westward Monte Pin's and Maddalena's
Conical summits and the hamlets spread
White at their base Preghena and Varòl,
Lanza, Miòn, and Cort by Nos ravine
(Under Mont' Ozol's opposite, sunny side)
Cagnd, Reyò and Castel Malgolo,
To dear San Zeno, eastward, and Verdès,
And high Revenna's dolomitic range

This side the Landl and the Vale of Adige.
