And her screams through air resound:
The children they hear with delight.
Runs e'en my foot along!I feel so well, I feel so ill,
I the present needs must fear.
WHY pacest thou, my neighbour fair,
I sing of a maid's repentant fears,
What bears he along in his flight?A daughter it is, and she gently sleeps on"--
That we both to these times should belong,This had God in His goodness willed.-----MOTLEY this congregation is, for, lo!At the communion kneel both friend and foe.-----IF the country I'm to show,Thou must on the housetop go.-----A MAN with households twain
SHOULD these songs, love, as they fleet,
O, SAY, 'neath what celestial sign
Since they thus have swell'd our joy,
I'd wish to be slain,Than all the gladness
Short the time was--seven days had pass'd not,--Yet enough 'twas; many mighty princesSought the woman in her widow's-mourning.Sought the woman,--as their wife they sought her.And the mightiest was Imoski's Cadi,And the woman weeping begg'd her brother:By thy life, my brother, I entreat thee,Let me not another's wife be ever,Lest my heart be broken at the imageOf my poor, my dearly-cherish'd children!"
