Page 96 - THE WALL-FLOWER. THE Wall-flower— the Wall-flower, How beautiful it blooms ! It gleams above the ruined tower, Like sunlight over tombs ; It sheds a halo of repose Around the wrecks of time. To beauty give the flaunting rose, The Wall-flower is sublime.
Page 87 - A poor wayfaring man of grief Hath often crossed me on my way, Who sued so humbly for relief That I could never answer, Nay.
