    That was indeed to live—
  At one bold swoop to wrest
  From darkling death the best
That Death to Life can give!

      What is more cheerful, now, in the fall of the year, than an open-wood-fire? Do you hear those little chirps and twitters coming out of that piece of apple-wood? Those are the ghosts of the robins and blue-birds that sang upon the bough when it was in blossom last Spring. In Summer whole flocks of them come fluttering about the fruit-trees under the window: so I have singing birds all the year round.
          Miss Mehitabel’s Son.
 
Joseph Chamberlain. (1836–1914)

    You have a daughter, Captain Reese,
Ten female cousins and a niece,
A ma, if what I’m told is true,
Six sisters and an aunt or two.


Now, somehow, Sir, it seems to me,
More friendly-like we all should be
If you united of them to
Unmarried members of the crew.
          Captain Reese.
