POETICAL QUOTATIONS.

ABSENCE.

THOUGH absent, present in desires they be;
Our souls much further than our eyes can see.

Absence not long enough to root out quite
All love, increases love at second sight.

Every moment

I'm from thy sight, the heart within my bosom
Moans like a tender infant in its cradle,
Whose nurse has left it.

Of day or dreaming nights but I am with thee:
There's not a wind but whispers of thy name,
And not a flower that sleeps beneath the moon.
But in its hues or fragrance tells a tale
Of thee.

DRAYTON

OTWAY'S Venice Preserved, There's not an hour

What tender strains of passion can impart
The pangs of absence to an amorous heart!
Far, far too faint the powers of language prove,
Language, that slow interpreter of love!

T. MAY.

PROCTOR'S Mirandola.

Souls paired like ours, like ours to union wrought,
Converse by silent sympathy of thought.

PATTISON
