6768
    O Love! what hours were thine and mine,
In lands of palm and southern pine;
  In lands of palm, of orange-blossom,
Of olive, aloe, and maize and vine!
          The Daisy. Stanza 1.
6769
    So dear a life your arms enfold,
Whose crying is a cry for gold.
          The Daisy. Stanza 24.
6770
    Read my little fable:
  He that runs may read. 1 
Most can raise the flowers now,
  For all have got the seed.
          The Flower.
6771
    With prudes for proctors, dowagers for deans,
And sweet girl-graduates in their golden hair.
          The Princess. Prologue. Line 141.
6772
    A rosebud set with little wilful thorns,
And sweet as English air could make her, she.
          The Princess. Part i. Line 153.
6773
                Jewels five-words-long,
That on the stretched forefinger of all Time
Sparkle forever.
          The Princess. Part ii. Line 355.
6774
    Blow, bugle, blow! set the wild echoes flying!
Blow, bugle! answer, echoes! dying, dying, dying.
          The Princess. Part iii. Line 352.
6775
    O Love! they die in yon rich sky,
  They faint on hill or field or river:
Our echoes roll from soul to soul,
  And grow forever and forever.
Blow, bugle, blow! set the wild echoes flying!
And answer, echoes, answer! dying, dying, dying.
          The Princess. Part iii. Line 360.
6776
    There sinks the nebulous star we call the sun.
          The Princess. Part iv. Line 1.
6777
      Tears, idle tears, I know not what they mean.
Tears from the depth of some divine despair
