I had a dove and the sweet dove died; / And I have thought it died of grieving: / O, what could it grieve for? Its feet were tied, / With a silken thread of my own hand's weaving; / Sweet little red feet! why should you die-- / Why should you leave me, sweet bird! why? / You liv'd alone in the forest-tree, / Why, pretty thing! would you not live with me? / I kiss'd you oft and gave you white peas; / Why not live sweetly, as in the green trees?

Yes, moonlight Emperor! felicity / Has been thy meed for many thousand years; / Yet often have I, on the brink of tears, / Mourn’d as if yet thou wert a forester;— / Forgetting the old tale.

The sea is large / The sea must know more than any of us.

But it seems like the sea’s return / To the ancient lands where it left the shells

The Wind does — working like a Hand, / Whose fingers Comb the Sky — / Then quiver down — with tufts of Tune — / Permitted Gods, and me

There is nothing, Sir, too little for a creature as man. It is by studying little things that we attain the great art of having as little misery and as much happiness as possible.

Beauty—be not caused—It Is— / Chase it, and it ceases— / Chase it not, and it abides—
