Page 108 - BOY'S SONG James Hogg Where the pools are bright and deep, Where the gray trout lies asleep, Up the river and over the lea— That's the way for Billy and me. Where the blackbird sings the latest, Where the hawthorn blooms the sweetest, Where the nestlings chirp and flee— That's the way for Billy and me.
Page 254 - And saw within the moonlight in his room, Making it rich and like a lily in bloom, An angel writing in a book of gold. Exceeding peace had made Ben Adhem bold, And to the Presence in the room he said, " What writest thou ?"
