You Wonder Whether Fate Is 
accidental
You wonder whether fate is accidental,Or whether this one day a harrowed heartMight make some difference to a willing God,Knowing well that faith is more than mental.In fact, you know quite well that you don't knowPrecisely why you're here, or why today,Perhaps most out of loyalty, you pray,Unwilling to let long-loved labors go,Reciting with true grace the ancient part....

You Had Me For A Night, Then Turned Away You Had Me For A Night, Then Turned Away

You Had Me For A Night, Then Turned Away
You had me for a night, then turned away,Inspiring a love you didn't want.I was a fairy you might unenchantTo show yourself that you could have your way. And now I'm left with all the shame of loveThat unashamed took pleasure in your joy.You used me as a fake, erotic toy,Not caring much what I was thinking of. The worst is that I long for your caress.I know you're just annoyed, which drives me mad!But knowing how completely I've been hadDoes not, alas, make me want you less....

VOLUME II CHAPTER XLVI. A Love GiftWhen Alice heard of her cousin's success, and understood that he was actually Member of Parliament for the Chelsea Districts, she resolved that she would be triumphant. She had sacrificed nearly everything to her desire for his success in public life, and now that he had achieved the first great step towards that success, it would have been madness on her part to decline her share in the ovation. If she could not rejoice in that, what source of joy would then be... Long Stories - Post by : KarenC - Author : Anthony Trollope - Read : 3131

VOLUME II CHAPTER XLI. The Value of a Thick SkinSir Orlando Drought must have felt bitterly the quiescence with which he sank into obscurity on the second bench on the opposite side of the House. One great occasion he had on which it was his privilege to explain to four or five hundred gentlemen the insuperable reasons which caused him to break away from those right honourable friends to act with whom had been his comfort and his duty, his great joy and his unalloyed satisfaction. Then he occupied... Long Stories - Post by : xerxes12 - Author : Anthony Trollope - Read : 2155

PART I. IN THE OLD WORLD CHAPTER XVI. "WHEN THE DEVIL DRIVES."Monsieur de Vivonne had laid his ambuscade with discretion. With a closed carriage and a band of chosen ruffians he had left the palace a good half-hour before the king's messengers, and by the aid of his sister's gold he had managed that their journey should not be a very rapid one. On reaching the branch road he had ordered the coachman to drive some little distance along it, and had tethered all the horses to a fence under his charge....

Chapter XI. The Great Agra TreasureOur captive sat in the cabin opposite to the iron box which he had done so much and waited so long to gain. He was a sunburned, reckless-eyed fellow, with a net-work of lines and wrinkles all over his mahogany features, which told of a hard, open-air life. There was a singular prominence about his bearded chin which marked a man who was not to be easily turned from his purpose. His age may have been fifty or thereabouts, for his black, curly hair was thickly shot... Long Stories - Post by : bingo4466 - Author : Arthur Conan Doyle - Read : 1983

CHAPTER III. A FAREWELLMrs. Anderson felt that she had made a mistake. She had not meant to tell Julia that August was to leave. But now that this stormy scene had taken place, she thought she could make a good use of it. She knew that her husband co-operated with her in her opposition to "the Dutchman," only because he was afraid of his wife. In his heart, Samuel Anderson could not refuse anything to his daughter. Denied any of the happiness which most men find in loving their wives, he found consolation... Long Stories - Post by : JohnFoutz - Author : Edward Eggleston - Read : 852

The Three Clerks - Chapter 32. The Parliamentary Committee
CHAPTER XXXII. THE PARLIAMENTARY COMMITTEEThere is a sport prevalent among the downs in Hampshire to which, though not of a high degree, much interest is attached. Men and boys, with social glee and happy boyish shouts, congregate together on a hill-side, at the mouth of a narrow hole, and proceed, with the aid of a well-trained bull-dog, to draw a badger. If the badger be at all commendable in his class this is by no means an easy thing to do. He is a sturdy animal, and well fortified with sharp...

In the evening, when he got home from the store, he seemed so restless that his mother asked him what was the matter with him. "This is my last week at the store, mother," he answered, soberly. "I suppose that is what makes me feel nervous." "Has Mr. Mead been induced by Mrs. Ross to turn you away?" asked Mrs. Gilbert, beginning to feel indignant. "No; he isn't that kind...

Of course he made his moan at being compelled to spend all his time on this work. He was not, equally of course, in any way compelled, except in the sense that if you want to make a large income you must earn it. This is the sense in which many people are compelled to do work, which they give you to understand is not the most suited to their genius, and it must be admitted...

The communication distressed the whole family, and the baronet turned to him in the most cordial manner, as he took one of his hands; and said with an air of solemnity-- "Mr. Denbigh, I could wish you to make this house your home;...

Now he was no longer his own master. He must go and come at the will of his employer. To be sure, his earnings were greater than in his street life, and he had a regular home. He knew beforehand where he was going to sleep, and was tolerably sure of a meal. But before the end of the first week he got out of money....

CHAPTER IVWe held our next business meeting on my houseboat. Brown was opposed at first to my going down to this houseboat at all. He thought that none of us should leave town while the novel was still on hand. MacShaughnassy, on the contrary, was of opinion that we should work better on a houseboat. Speaking for himself, he said he never felt more like writing a really great work than when lying in a hammock among whispering leaves, with the deep blue sky above him, and a tumbler of iced claret...

Tom Swift And His War Tank - Chapter 14. The Ruined Factory
Chapter XIV. The Ruined FactoryOnly too true were the words Ned Newton shouted to his chum. Tank A was really capsizing. She had advanced to the edge of the gully and started down it, moving slowly on the caterpillar bands of steel. Then had come a sudden lurch, caused, as they learned afterward, by the slipping off of a great quantity of shale from an underlying shelf of rock. This made unstable footing for the tank. One side sank lower than the other, and before Tom could neutralize this by speeding... Long Stories - Post by : Heidi66469 - Author : Victor Appleton - Read : 571
