    My heart is like a singing bird.
          A Birthday.

    Better by far you should forget and smile
Than that you should remember and be sad.
          A Birthday.
7667
    Remember me when I am gone away,
Gone far away into the silent land.
          Sonnet. Remember.
7668
    All earth’s full rivers can not fill
The sea that drinking thirsteth still.
          By the Sea.

    One day in the country
Is worth a month in town.
          Summer.

    Silence more musical than any song.
          Sonnet. Rest.
 
Thomas Edward Brown. (1830–1897)

    A Garden is a lovesome thing, God wot!
      Rose plot,
      Fringed pool,
      Ferned grot,
The veriest school of Peace; and yet the fool contends that God is not—
Not God! in Gardens! when the eve is cool?
Nay, but I have a sign:
’T is very sure God walks in mine.
          My Garden.
 
Charles Hamilton Aïdé (1830–1906)
 
7672
    I sit beside my lonely fire
  And pray for wisdom yet:
For calmness to remember
  Or courage to forget.
          Remember or Forget.
