"Merry, laughing brown-eyed
Susan's bright faces along the grassy way, wholesome, happy-hearted little
country maids are they." Minnie Curtis
"Blue thou art, intensely
blue! Flower, whence came thy dazzling hue? Straightway from
the firmament, was thy sapphire brilliance sent." Montgomery
"Merrily, merrily shall I live
now, o'er canopied with woodbine, that hangs on the bough."
"A little garden, not too
fine, and old man's beard round the cottage twine, bent bowering overhead
to twine a summer shade."
"There, where melodious birds
sing madrigals, we will make our bed of a thousand brilliant poppies."
