Make haste, or else the tide will turn ; Make haste, you noisy sea ; Roll quite across the bank, and then Far on across the lea.
Page 158 - Apricots, and gilly-flowers. 8. August brings the sheaves of corn, Then the harvest home is borne. 9. Warm September brings the fruit, Sportsmen then begin to shoot. 10. Brown October brings the pheasant ; Then to gather nuts is pleasant.
Page 107 - So pensive and so slow ? My birthplace was the mountain, My nurse the April showers, My cradle was a fountain...
