The Eustace Diamonds - Volume 2 - Chapter 45. The Journey to London
VOLUME II CHAPTER XLV. The Journey to LondonWhen we left Lady Eustace alone in her bedroom at the Carlisle hotel after the discovery of the robbery, she had very many cares upon her mind. The necklace was, indeed, safe under her pillow in the bed; but when all the people were around her,--her own friends, and the police, and they who were concerned with the inn,--she had not told them that it was so, but had allowed them to leave her with the belief that the diamonds had gone with the box. Even at... Long Stories - Post by : ralf12 - Author : Anthony Trollope - Read : 1346

The Kentons - Chapter 20
CHAPTER XXFrom the easy conquest of the men who looked at her Lottie proceeded to the subjection of the women. It would have been more difficult to put these down, if the process had not been so largely, so almost entirely subjective. As it was, Lottie exchanged snubs with many ladies of the continental nationalities who were never aware of having offered or received offence. In some cases, when they fearlessly ventured to speak with her, they behaved very amiable, and seemed to find her conduct...

Except about her shoulders, which had been protected by the slicker, she was wringing wet. The Mexican women came quickly to help her change in a tent near by; but Madeline preferred for the moment to warm her numb feet and hands and to watch the spectacle of her arriving friends.Dorothy plumped off her saddle into the arms of several waiting cowboys. She could... Long Stories - Post by : vbhnl - Author : Zane Grey - Read : 2601

Songs Of The Summer Days Songs Of The Summer Days

Songs Of The Summer Days
I. A glory on the chamber wall! A glory in the brain! Triumphant floods of glory fall On heath, and wold, and plain. Earth lieth still in hopeless bliss; She has, and seeks no more; Forgets that days come after this, Forgets the days before. Each ripple waves a flickering fire Of gladness, as it runs; They laugh and flash, and leap and spire, And toss ten thousand suns. But hark! low, in the world within, One sad aeolian tone: "Ah! shall we ever, ever win A summer of our own?" II. A morn of winds...

The king had, in point of fact, entered Melun with the intention ofmerely passing through the city. The youthful monarch was most eagerlyanxious for amusements; only twice during the journey had he been able tocatch a glimpse of La Valliere, and, suspecting that his only opportunityof speaking to her would be after nightfall, in the gardens, and afterthe ceremonial of reception had been gone through, he had been verydesirous to arrive at Vaux as early as possible.

The Sun And The Frogs
Rejoicing on their tyrant's wedding-day, The people drown'd their care in drink; While from the general joy did AEsop shrink, And show'd its folly in this way. "The sun," said he, "once took it in his head To have a partner: so he wed. From swamps, and ponds, and marshy bogs, Up rose the wailings of the frogs. "What shall we do, should he have progeny?" Said they to Destiny; 'One sun we scarcely can endure, And half-a-dozen, we are sure, Will... Poems - Post by : kaybee - Author : Jean De La Fontaine - Read : 1419

The Song Of The Soldier-born
Give me the scorn of the stars and a peak defiant; Wail of the pines and a wind with the shout of a giant; Night and a trail unknown and a heart reliant. Give me to live and love in the old, bold fashion; A soldier's billet at night and a soldier's ration; A heart that leaps to the fight with a soldier's passion. For I hold as a simple faith there's no denying: The trade of a soldier's the only trade worth plying; The death of a soldier's the only death worth dying. So let me go and leave...
