THE MOON.
And lo! from opening clouds I saw emerge
The loveliest moon that ever silver'd o'er
A shell for Neptune's goblet : she did soar
So passionately bright, my dazzled soul,
Commingling with her argent sphere, did roll
Through clear and cloudy, even when she went
At last into a dark and vapoury tent-
Whereat, methought, the lidless-eyed train
Of planets all were in the blue again.

KEATS.
BROTHERS' QUARRELS.
The jars of brothers, two such mighty ones,
Are like a small stone thrown into a river,
The breach scarce heard ; but view the beaten current,
And you shall see a thousand angry rings
Rise in his face, still swelling and still growing ;
So jars circle in distrusts; distrusts breed dangers,
And dangers death (the greatest extreme) shadow,
Till nothing bound 'em but the shore-their graves.

BEAUMONT AND FLETCHER. SORROWFUL BEAUTY.

In her face, Though something touch'd by sorrow, you may trace The all she was, when first in life's young spring, Like the gay bee-bird on delighted wing, She stoop'd to cull the honey from each flower That bares its breast in joy's luxuriant bower! O’er her pure forehead, pale as moonlit snow, Her ebon locks are parted ; and her brow Stands forth like morning from the shades of nightSerene, though clouds hang over it.

ALARIC A. WATTS.

HOW TO LIVE. We live in deeds, not years ; in thoughts, not breaths ; In feelings, not in figures on a dial. We should count time by heart-throbs. He most lives Who thinks most ; feels the noblest; acts the best.

BAILEY.

This work is designed to form a collection of the choicest Poetry in the English language. Nothing but what is really good will be admitted. No original poetry will find a place.

A portion of it will be hereafter devoted to The Poetry of Travel, which will be paged so as to form a separate volume for the use of travellers, containing what the Poets have sung about the localities usually visited by tourists.
