Not illustrated. 1916 edition. Excerpt: ...Where, though the winds and storms in anger roar, The sheep have shelter, and their rest is sure. 3. Soon as, simul atque. 8. Begin " Certa manet requies." LXXV. Natv/re's Gall. Companions, come! Hear Nature, who is calling, And tells you Spring's fresh season is at hand. 0 come, for radiance on the field is falling, And birds are carolling, a joyful band. " 0 why delay? the sky is brightly shining." The woodland gently murmuring seems to say; " Here 's warmth! here 's shadow where the boughs are twining! The day is bright and cloudless: why delay 1" 5, 8. See M. et I. 2 and 25. 6. Gently murmuring, summisso murmure. LXXVI. Red, White, and Blue. Lo! a Red ball the sun in heaven doth climb, And through the haze seeks the Blue realms of air. The fields are seen aglow and White with rime, And snow untouched covers the branches bare. Of all her hues Nature in three is dight, And in these three as Briton I delight. 3. Aglow, candens. 6. " Quos ego prae reliquis scilicet 5. Is dight, induitur (transitive). Anglus amo."

Again, vicissim. 8. To make a home, habitare se3. Thawing, laxatas. dem. LXXVIII. Vwtor V ictus. Whate'er is fair, 0 Death, thou wilt devour! Thy tyranny both earth and sky obey: Thou tender flowers and sturdy boughs dost sway, And seize whate'er is brought by fleeting more
