Passage

The storm came on before its time

She wandered up and down;

And many a hill did Lucy climb;

But never reached the town.

The wretched parents all that night

Went shouting far and wide;

But there was neither sound nor sight

To serve them for a guide.

That day-break on a hill, they stood

That overlooked the moor;

And thence they saw the bridge of wood,

A furiong from their door.

They wept and turning homeward, cried,

‘In heaven we all shall meet,

When in the snow the mother spied

The print of Lucy’s feet.

– William Wordsworth

Passage

He that loves a rosy cheek

Or a coral lip admires.

Or from star-like eyes doth seek

Fuel to maintain his fires;

As old time makes these decay,

So his flames must waste away.

But a smooth and steadfast mind,

Gentle thoughts and calm desires,

Hearts with equal love combined,

Kindle never-dying fires

Where these are not, I despise

Lovely cheeks or lips or eyes.

– Thomas Carew

Passage

It is not growing like a tree

In bulk, both make man better be,

Or standing as on oak, three hundred years,

To fall a log at last, dry, bold and sere;

A life of a day.

Is fairer in May.

Although, it fall and die that night

It was the plant and flower o’ light,

In small proportions we just beauties see.

And in short measure life may perfect be.

– Ben Jonson
