Stran 489 - THE poet in a golden clime was born, With golden stars above; Dower'd with the hate of hate, the scorn of scorn, The love of love.

Stran 84 - O solemn bells ! whose consecrated masses Recall the faith of old, — O tinkling bells ! that lulled with twilight music The spiritual fold ! Your voices break and falter in the darkness, — Break, falter, and are still ; And veiled and mystic, like the Host descending, The sun sinks from the hill...
Stran 83 - Bells of the Past, whose long-forgotten music Still fills the wide expanse, Tingeing the sober twilight of the Present With color of romance: I hear your call, and see the sun descending On rock and wave and sand, As down the coast the Mission voices blending Girdle the heathen land.

Stran 166 - And when I see the gold lumps there, I'll pick them off the ground. "I'll scrape the mountains clean, my boys, I'll drain the rivers dry, A pocket full of rocks bring home, So brothers, don't you cry! Oh, California ! That's the land for me, I'm going to Sacramento, With my washbowl on my knee.
Stran 84 - Borne on the swell of your long waves receding, i touch the farther Past — I see the dying glow of Spanish glory, The sunset dream and last!
