The Children's Garland from the Best Poets by Coventry Kersey Dighton Patmore

THE HOMES OF ENGLAND The stately homes of England!How beautiful they stand,Amidst their tall ancestral trees,O'er all the pleasant land!The deer across their greensward boundThrough shade and sunny gleam;And the swan glides by them with the soundOf some rejoicing stream. The merry homes of England!Around their hearths by night,What gladsome looks of household loveMeet in the ruddy light!The blessed homes of England!How softly on their bowersIs laid the holy quietnessThat breathes from sabbath hours! The cottage homes of England!By thousands on her plainsThey are smiling o'er the silvery brooks,And round the hamlet fanes.Through glowing orchards forth they peep,Each from its nook of leaves;And fearless there the lowly sleep,As the bird beneath their eaves. The free, fair homes of England!Long, long, in hut and hall,May hearts of native proof be rear'dTo guard each hallow'd wall!And green for ever be the groves,And bright the flowery sod,Where first the child's glad spirit lovesIts country and its God!
CIV MARY THE MAID OF THE INN Who is yonder poor maniac, whose wildly fixed eyesSeem a heart overcharged to express?She weeps not, yet often and deeply she sighs;She never complains, but her silence impliesThe composure of settled distress. No pity she looks for, no alms doth she seek;Nor for raiment nor food doth she care:Through her tatters the winds of the winter blow bleakOn that wither'd breast, and her weather-worn cheekHath the hue of a mortal despair. Yet cheerful and happy, nor distant the day,Poor Mary the Maniac hath been;The traveller remembers who journey'd this wayNo damsel so lovely, no damsel so gay,As Mary, the Maid of the Inn. Her cheerful address fill'd the guests with delightAs she welcom'd them in with a smile;Her heart was a stranger to childish affright,And Mary would walk by the Abbey at nightWhen the wind whistled down the dark aisle.
