As long as I love Beauty I am young.
Teetotallers lack the sympathy and generosity of men that drink.
The more help a person has in his garden, the less it belongs to him.
But cats to me are strange, so strange I cannot sleep if one is near.
It was the rainbow gave thee birth, and left thee all her lovely hues.
A poor life this if, full of care, we have no time to stand and stare.
What is this life if, full of care, we have no time to stand and stare?
What is this life if, so full of care, We have no time to stand and stare.
Where We Differ
To think my thoughts are hers,
Not one of hers is mine;
She laughs -- while I must sigh;
She sighs -- while I must whine.
She eats -- while I must fast;
She reads -- while I am blind;
She sleeps -- while I must wake;
Free -- I no freedom find.
To think the world for me
Contains but her alone,
And that her eyes prefer
Some ribbon, scarf, or stone.
