Love me, - I love you
A city plum is not a plum
A baby's cradle with no baby in it
Hope is like a harebell trembling from its birth
A linnet in a gilded cage
If all were rain and never sun
If I were a Queen
What are heavy? sea-sand and sorrow
Brown and furry
A toadstool comes up in a night
If a pig wore a wig
How many seconds in a minute?
What is pink? a rose is pink
A pin has a head, but has no hair
When fishes set umbrellas up
The peacock has a score of eyes
The wind has such a rainy sound
Who has seen the wind?
When a mounting skylark sings
An emerald is as green as grass
What does the bee do?
I caught a little ladybird
Baby lies so fast asleep

If love is not worth loving, then life is not worth living
Roses on a brier

Of each sad word which is more sorrowful
Our heaven must be within ourselves
'A Helpmeet for Him'
O ye who love today
Lord, I am feeble and of mean account
What is the beginning? Love. What the course? Love still
As froth on the face of the deep
Patience must dwell with Love, for Love and Sorrow
Hope is the counterpoise of fear
'Subject to like Passions as we are'
Experience bows a sweet contented face

Safe where I cannot lie yet
