Page A baby was sleeping, its mother was weeping 235 Abou Ben Adhem (may his tribe increase) 185 A br ght something, sailing down apace .. 157 A casemen high and triple arched there was

45 A chie'tain to the Highlands hound

215 A Christian dwells, like Ariel, in the sun .. 96 A dewr rop. falling on the wild sea-wave...

139 Afar in the Desert I love to ride.

241 A fellow in a market town...

340 After a thousand mazes overgone

158 A gentle knight was pricking on the plain A goodly lady clad in hunter's weed

8 Ah, fair Zenocrate ! divine Zenocrate !...... 361 Ah! my heart is pained with throbbing...... Ah ! 'tis like a tale of olden.....

277 Alas ! how light a cause may move 269 Alas! they had been friends in youth A little child, a limber elf

171 A little learning is a dangerous thing 480 Allen-a-Dale has no fagot for burning All in the Downs the fleet was moored

202 All joy was bereft me the day that you left me 491 All love renders wise....

278 All thoughts, all passions, all delights...... 264 All worldly shapes shall melt in gloom.. 115 A lonely Hall upon a lonelier moor

68 Along these blushing borders, bright with dew 17 Already evening ; in the duskiest nook.

313 Already hath the day grown grey with age 312 And as I sat, the birdis herk'ning thus..... And is she happy? Does she see unmoved 81 And is there care in heaven?

9 And is there then no earthly place.. And ne'er did Grecian chisel trace

40 And so the baby's come, and I shall die !... 275 And think'st thou, man, thy secret wish to shroud

125 And though for her sake I am crost

86 And why stands Scotland idly now

35 And wilt Thou hear the fevered heart

139 An easy task it was, I trow

33 A parish priest was of the pilgrim train 14 Arethusa arose...

165 A Sensitive Plant in a garden grew

160 A servant with this clause

88 As it fell upon a day

467 Ask me no more where Jove bestows...

.... 252 Ask me not what the maiden feels

37 Ask me why I send you here

252 As precious gums are not for lasting fire... 284 As Rochefoucauld his maxims drew 318 As some rond virgin, whom her mother's care 481 As through the garden's desert paths I rove 28 A stringed gourd on the sill...

516 A.thing of beauty

is a joy for ever. 154 At last a soft and solemn-breathing sound.. 411 At my birth

451 At noon, as he lay in the sultriness under his broad leafy limes....

143 At summer eve, when heaven's ethereal bow 112 Attend, all ve who list to hear our noble England's praise

69 At the death of night and the birth of day 79 At the mid hour of inight, when stars are weeping, I fly

229 Ave Maria : blessèd he the hour.

.... 124 Awake ere the morning dawn,-skylark, arise!

236 Away they scour, impetuous, ardent, strong 26 A weary lot is thine, fair maid A wet sheet and a flowing sea

232 Ay, here such valorous deeds were done

346 Being alone, Penthea, you have granted... 363 Ben Battle was a soldier bold

348 Beside yon straggling fence that skirts the

way.. Beyond the shadow of the ship

............ 172 Bird of the wilderness

223 Blow, blow, thou winter wind

197 Bonny Kilmeny gaed up the glen

178 Break, break, break

240 Break, Phant’sie, from thy cave of cloud 198 Breathes there the man with soul so dead 116 Rusk ye, busk ye, my bonny bonny bride.

203 But are ye sure the news is true... Rut grant, in public men some times are shown 326 But I have lived, and have not lived in vain 125 But now the gentle dew-fall sends abroad...

30 But who the melodies of morn can tell ?. 20 Buy my flowers-oh. buy-I pray!

234 By Helle's stream there is a voice of wail !

53 Nebo's lonely mountain

80 By that lake whose gloomy shore

231 By this, though deep the evening fell 38 By woody walks, near pathways dank 148 Call it not vain :- they do not err

117 Clear-eyed Astrea

84 Clear had the day been from the dawn...... 469 Come, Evening, once again, season of peace 25 Come, dear children, let us away

189 Come, gentle Spring! ethereal mildness,come 17 Come, here's a health to thee and thine

144 C me, ho! and wake Diana with a hymn 384 "Come, if you dare!" our trumpets sound 201 Come, lead me, lassie, to the shade

108 Come live with me, and he my love 250 'ome. poor remains of friends, rest on this rock

397 Come Sleep, O Sleep, the certain knot of peace

304 Come unto these yellow sands

196 Cunigunda, hast thou not sworn to yield thy hand to none.

Page Down by yon hazel copse at evening blazed 28 Down thither prone in flight

13 Do ye hear the children weeping, O my brothers !

133 Drink to me only with thine eyes ........... Fach small breath

88 Earth has not anything to show more fair 310 Eden stretched her line.. Egeria ! sweet creation of some heart 123

with all thy faults, I love thee still 102 Ere yet our course was graced with social trees

311 Ere you speak : Eternal Hope ! when yonder spheres sublime

114 Ethereal minstrel ! pilgrim of the sky !..... Even is come, and from the dark Park, hark 348 Even such is Time, that takes on trust...... 84 Even thus, amid thy pride and luxury...... 137 Ever let the Fancy roam ....

512 Fair daffodils, we weep to see..

470 Fair Isabel, poor simple Isabel !..... 268 Fair stood the wind for France

195 Faithful friends! It lies, I know

518 Fall, oh ! fall, ye words of anger.

277 Fame is the spur that the clear spirit doth raise

89 Far as creation's ample range extends 93 Farewell ! -- but whenever you welcome the hour

230 Farewell, Cariola. Farewell -God knows when we shall meet again

368 Farewell, pretty lady; you must hold the credit of vour father

368 Farewell to Lochaber! farewell to my Jean! 202 Fur in a wild, unknown to public view...... 475 Far in the chambers of the west

32 Far to the right where Apennine ascends... Follow a shadow, it still fies you

315 Forget not yet the tried intent.

245 “Forget thee!” if to dream by night, and muse on thee by day.

271 For love is a celestial harmony

466 Forthwith up rose the Consul

237 For valour, is not love a Hercules..

249 Fresh Spring ! the herald of Love's mighty king.

305 From side to side of her delightful isle From the bright stars, or from the viewless air 298 From the forests and highlands

511 Full in the middle of this pleasantness.. 155 Full many a glorious morning have I seen 307 Gather ye rosebuds while ye may ............ 199 Gentle herdsman, tell to me

194 Get up,get up, for shame! the blooming morn 470 Give, if thou canst, an alms; if not, afford 89 Give me a spirit that on life's rough sea 360 Give me leave to enjny myself

407 Give me my robe, put on my crown; I have 379 Give me that ring

368 Give me the gown. Where is thy instrument?

369 Give place, ye lovers, here before

245 Gloomy night embraced the place.. 281 Glorious Orb ! the idol ..

428 Go, forget me: why should sorrow. Gold on her head, and gold on her feet...... 278

Page Go, lovely Rose !.

90 Good even, Casca: brought you Cæsar home! 397 Good Colonel Glorious, whilst we treat of

valour...... Good people all, of every sort.

328 Good people all, with one accord

327 Go, patter to lubbers and swabs, d'ye see... 212 Go where glory waits thee

229 Hail, Memory, hail ! in thy exhaustless mine

29 Hail, old patrician trees, so great and good! 90 Hail to the Chief who in triumph advances ! 218 Hail to thee, blithe spirit !

224 Happy insect ! what can be

90 Hard by, a flesher on a block had laid his whittle down

70 Hark how it falls ! and now it steals along 122 Hark, how the birds do sing

86 Hark! I hear her

462 Hark! the cock crows; and yon bright star 14 Hark ! 'tis the twanging horn!

23 Hark to the knell ! Has He not hid thee and thy favoured land 102 Has sorrow thy young days shaded 231 Hast thou a charm to stay the morning-star 492 Have you seen a bright lily grow

249 Heap on more wood !-the wind is chill

33 Hear what Highland Nora said,

335 Heat me these irons hot; and look thou stand

370 Heaven from all creatures hides the book of fate

93 He does well who does his best

295 He is gone on the mountain.

293 He jests at scars, that never felt a wound... 395 He listened at the porch that day

136 He making speedy way through 'spersed air 3 Hence, loathèd Melancholy..

149 Hence, vain deluding joys

150 Herbs too she knew, and well of each could speak

19 Here a sheer hulk lies poor Tom Bowling... 213 Here let me rest amid the bearded grass... 144 Here lies our sovereign Lord the King...... 315 Here's a health to ane I lo'e dear

262 Here she was wont to go! and here ! 401 Her eyes the glowworm lend thee..... 253 Here you will find a more refreshing air... 437 He sat in silence on the ground

63 He that has sailed upon the dark blue sea

49 He who hath bent him o'er the dead

52 High over all Panglory's blazing throne 85 His browny locks did hang in crooked curls 467 His own two hands the holy knots did knit

5 How beautiful beneath the bright blue sky 32 How calm, how beautiful comes on

60 How does your grace?

393 How gallantly, how merrily How happy is he born and taught.

88 How happy is the blameless Vestal's lot!... 95 How many times do I love thee, dear?... How now, spirit! whither wander you? 383 How sleep the brave, who sink to rest 205 How still the morning of the hallowed day! 25 How sweet and solemn is the midnight scene! 415 How sweet and soothing is this hour of calm !

432 How'sweet itgwere, if without feeble fright 313
