C.N. Douglas, comp. Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical. 1917.


  • Hail to the King of Bethlehem,
  • Who weareth in His diadem
  • The yellow crocus for the gem
  • Of His authority!
  • Longfellow.

  • Welcome, wild harbinger of spring!
  • To this small nook of earth;
  • Feeling and fancy fondly cling
  • Round thoughts which owe their birth
  • To thee, and to the humble spot
  • Where chance has fixed thy lowly lot.
  • Bernard Barton.
