A COLLECTION OF POEMS.

Second Series.

“O Thou, the primal fount of life and peace,

Who shedd'st Thy breathing quiet all around,
In me command that pain and conflict cease,

And turn to music every jarring sound.”

BOSTON:

PRE FACE.

This little volume, like the first series of “Quiet Hours," contains poems of nature and religion.

I must express my thanks to the authors who have kindly allowed me to make this use of their poems, and to the publishers who have been so good as to permit me to print copyrighted poems, - Messrs. D. Appleton & Co., Messrs. E. P. Dutton & Co., and Messrs. Roberts Brothers. Το the latter I am indebted for several poems by Jean Ingelow, from a volume called “Holy Songs, Carols, and Sacred Ballads.”

M. W. T.

NOVEMBER, 1880.
