ABOUT the sheltered garden ground
The trees stand strangely still.
The vale ne'er seemed so deep before,
Nor yet so high the hill.
An awful sense of quietness,
A fulness of repose,
Breathes from the dewy garden-lawns,
The silent garden rows.
As the hoof-beats of a troop of horse
Heard far across a plain,
A nearer knowledge of great thoughts
Thrills vaguely through my brain.
I lean my head upon my arm,
My heart's too full to think;
Like the roar of seas, upon my heart
Doth the morning stillness sink.
Let us, who part like brothers, part like bards;
And you in your tongue and measure, I in mine,
Our now division duly solemnise.
The infinite shining heavens
Rose and I saw in the night
Uncountable angel stars
My tea is nearly ready and the sun has left the sky …
It's time to take the window to see Leerie going by …

When I was sick and lay a-bed,
I had two pillows at my head,
And all my toys beside me lay,
From breakfast on through all the day
At home among my friends I stay,
But every night I go abroad
At evening when the lamp is lit,
Around the fire my parents sit;
They sit at home and talk and sing,
When at home alone I sit
And am very tired of it,
I have just to shut my eyes
Far `yont amang the years to be
When a' we think, an' a' we see,
An' a' we luve, `s been dung ajee
Where the bells peal far at sea
Cunning fingers fashioned me.
There on palace walls I hung
The moon has a face like the clock in the hall;
She shines on thieves on the garden wall,
On streets and fields and harbour quays,
