INDEX OF FIRST LINES
Adieu, adieu I my native shore 7
Afric is all the sun's, and as her earth 273
And thou art dead, as young and fair 289 ,
Ave Maria! blessed be the hour 270
'Bring forth the horse!' The horse was brought 223
Clime of the unforgotten brave! 291
Come, blue-eyed maid of heaven !—but thou, alas 25
Eternal Spirit of the chainless Mind! 155
Hail to our master !—Prince of Earth and Air 192
How pleasant were the songs of Toobonai 301
If that high world, which lies beyond 296
I had a dream, which was not all a dream 220
I stood in Venice, on the Bridge of Sighs 92
I tread on air, and sink not; yet I fear 279
Is thy face like thy mother's, my fair child! 51
Know ye the land where the cypress and myrtle 292
Maid of Athens, ere we part 288
Mont Blanc is the monarch of mountains 170
Mortal! to thy bidding bowed 170
My hair is gray, but not with years 155
Not in those climes where I have late been straying I
O'er the glad waters of the dark-blue sea 293
O snatch'd away in beauty's bloom 297
O talk not to me of a name great in story 300
O, thou! in Hellas deemed of heavenly birth 3
Our life is twofold: Sleep hath its own world 213
Roll on, thou deep and dark-blue Ocean—roll 151
She walks in beauty, like the night 296
Slow sinks, more lovely ere his race be run 294
So, we'll go no more a roving 300
Tambourgi! Tambourgi! thy larum afar 42
The Assyrian came down like the wolf on the fold 298
The castled crag of Drachenfels 69
The isles of Greece ! the isles of Greece 263
The lamp must be replenish'd, but even then 168
The ship, call'd the most holy 'Trinidada' 238
There be none of Beauty's daughters 299
There is a pleasure in the pathless woods 151
There was a sound of revelry by night 58
Thus usually when he was ask'd to sing 262
'Tis time this heart should be unmov'd 303
When coldness wraps this suffering clay 297
When the moon is on the wave 175
When we two parted 287
"I do not know where else, within the limits, to find so delightful a selection of noble poems."—Prof. Thomas P. Price of Columbia.

New York Tribune: "We believe it will be received cordially by all lovers of poetry, whether elementary students or not. Basing his selections on the individual excellence and historic importance of the poems, the editor has not allowed his fidelity to the latter test to overrule his taste, and there is very little matter in the book which is historically significant alone. First and last, this is an anthology of the best poetry."
Prof. Henry A. Beers of Yale, author of "English Romanticism in the Eighteenth Century," etc.: "The collection seems to me in general made with excellent judgment, and the notes are sensible, helpful, and not too weitlaufig."
Prof. Albert S. Cook of Yale: "A thoroughly good selection, and the notes are judicious, so far as I have examined."
Prof.'William Hand Browne of Johns Hopkins: "The scope is amply wide, and the selections as judicious as was possible under the limitations. The notes, judging from a hasty glance, seem full and clear."
Prof. Charles W. Kent of the University of Virginia: "Contains nearly all the poems I would wish in such a volume and very few that I would readily dispense with."
Prof. James M. Dixon of 'Washington University: "It is just such a handy volume as can be made, by a sympathetic teacher, a companion to the scholar for life."
