The Pomp Of The Lavilettes - Chapter 2
CHAPTER IIIn the matter of power, Baby, the inquisitive postmaster and keeper of the bridge, was unlike the new arrival in Bonaventure. The abilities of the Honourable Tom Ferrol lay in a splendid plausibility, a spontaneous blarney. He could no more help being spendthrift of his affections and his morals than of his money, and many a time he had wished that his money was as inexhaustible as his emotions. In point of morals, any of the Lavilettes presented a finer average than their new guest, who... Long Stories - Post by : websioux - Author : Gilbert Parker - Read : 2548

The Secret Places Of The Heart - Chapter 5. In The Land Of The Forgotten Peoples
Chapter The Fifth. In The Land Of The Forgotten PeoplesSection 1A gust of confidence on the part of a person naturally or habitually reserved will often be followed by a phase of recoil. At breakfast next morning their overnight talk seemed to both Sir Richmond and Dr. Martineau like something each had dreamt about the other, a quite impossible excess of intimacy. They discussed the weather, which seemed to be settling down to the utmost serenity of which the English spring is capable, they talked... Long Stories - Post by : mrtwist - Author : H. G.

"One Person and one Freak," said the big Lavender Bear when he had carefully examined the strangers."I am sorry to hear you call poor Cayke the Cookie Cook a Freak," remonstrated the Frogman."She is the Person," asserted the King. "Unless I am mistaken, it is you who are the Freak."The Frogman was silent, for he could not truthfully deny it."Why have you dared intrude in my forest?" demanded demanded the Bear King."We didn't know it was your forest," said Cayke, "and we are on our way to the far...

CHAPTER XCVII. MRS HURTLE'S FATEMrs Hurtle had consented at the joint request of Mrs Pipkin and John Crumb to postpone her journey to New York and to go down to Bungay and grace the marriage of Ruby Ruggles, not so much from any love for the persons concerned, not so much even from any desire to witness a phase of English life, as from an irresistible tenderness towards Paul Montague. She not only longed to see him once again, but she could with difficulty bring herself to leave the land in which... Long Stories - Post by : torts - Author : Anthony Trollope - Read : 3274

EMLYN'S CURSEJust before the wild dawn broke on the morrow of the burning of the Towers, a corpse, roughly shrouded, was borne from the village into the churchyard of Cranwell a shallow grave had been dug for its last home."Whom do we bury in such haste?" asked the tall Thomas Bolle, who had delved the grave alone in the dark, for his orders were urgent, and the sexton was fled away from these tumults."That man of blood, Sir Christopher Harflete, who has caused us so much loss," said...

Fragment: Supposed To Be An Epithalamium
'Tis midnight now--athwart the murky air,Dank lurid meteors shoot a livid gleam;From the dark storm-clouds flashes a fearful glare,It shows the bending oak, the roaring stream.I pondered on the woes of lost mankind, I pondered on the ceaseless rage of Kings;My rapt soul dwelt upon the ties that bindThe mazy volume of commingling things,When fell and wild misrule to man stern sorrow brings.I heard a yell--it was not the knell, When the blasts on the wild lake sleep,That floats on the pause of the...

Ode: Autumn Ode: Autumn

Ode: Autumn
I saw old Autumn in the misty mornStand shadowless like Silence, listeningTo silence, for no lonely bird would singInto his hollow ear from woods forlorn,Nor lowly hedge nor solitary thorn;Shaking his languid locks all dewy brightWith tangled gossamer that fell by night, Pearling his coronet of golden corn.Where are the songs of Summer?--With the sun,Opening the dusky eyelids of the south,Till shade and silence waken up as one,And Morning sings with a warm odorous mouth.Where are the merry birds?--Away,...

The Fall Of Richmond: The Tidings Received In The Northern Metropolis
(April, 1865.)What mean these peals from every tower, And crowds like seas that sway?The cannon reply; they speak the heart Of the People impassioned, and say--A city in flags for a city in flames, Richmond goes Babylon's way-- _Sing and pray._O weary years and woeful wars, And armies in the grave;But hearts unquelled at last deterThe helmed dilated Lucifer-- Honor to Grant the brave,Whose three stars now like Orion's rise When wreck is on the wave-- _Bless his glaive._Well that...

CHAPTER VI - MASTER HUMPHREY, FROM HIS CLOCK-SIDE IN THE CHIMNEY CORNERTWO or three evenings after the institution of Mr. Weller's Watch, I thought I heard, as I walked in the garden, the voice of Mr. Weller himself at no great distance; and stopping once or twice to listen more attentively, I found that the sounds proceeded from my housekeeper's little sitting-room, which is at the back of the house. I took no further notice of the circumstance at that time, but it formed the subject of a conversation... Long Stories - Post by : 63608 - Author : Charles Dickens - Read : 1797

With this demand, however, the eating-house (havingexperience of its customer) declined to comply, churlishly sendingback for answer that if Mr Swiveller stood in need of beef perhapshe would be so obliging as to come...

Besides that it was very difficult to impart to any personnot intimately acquainted with the life she led, an adequate senseof its gloom and loneliness, a constant fear of in some waycommitting or injuring the old man to whom she was so tenderlyattached, had restrained her, even in the midst...

The frost-bound earth is free at last, That lay 'neath Winter's sullen yoke 'Till people felt it getting past A joke.

Before The Snow Before The Snow

Before The Snow
Autumn is gone: through the blue woodlands bare Shatters the rainy wind. A myriad leaves,Like birds that fly the mournful Northern air. Flutter away from the old forest's eaves.Autumn is gone: as yonder silent rill, Slow eddying o'er thick leaf-heaps lately shed,My spirit, as I walk, moves awed and still, By thronging fancies wild and wistful led.Autumn is gone: alas, how long ago The grapes were plucked, and garnered was the grain!How soon death settles on us, and the snow Wraps with its white...

Advice
Vile man, abstain from every artful plan, When found out disgrace the name of man; Let those who steal, repent and sin no more, Ere Law decrees, it’s vengeance on them pour; From trifling things, we greater ills pursue, Till the Law’s fangs are brought within our view; Stop, stop bad courses, ere it be too late, And justice dooms you to a culprit’s fate. Riots avoid, tho’ mischief none you do, Your being at them, brings a stain on you; Those who look on,... Poems - Post by : Amaranta720 - Author : James Parkerson - Read : 2018
