  • Do they miss me at home, do they miss me? / 'T would be an assurance most dear / To know that this moment some loved one / Was saying, 'Oh were she but here!'

    • "Do They Miss Me at Home," The Lost Ring and Other Poems ()
  • Whichever way the wind doth blow / Some heart is glad to have it so; / Then blow it east or blow it west, / The wind that blows, that wind is best.

    • "En Voyage," The Lost Ring and Other Poems ()
  • Heigh-ho! the rain, / The wild, impetuous rain! / Hear how it raves at my window-pane! / Hurrying down with a mad commotion, / Mad as the din of a storm-lashed ocean, — / Sweeping the mountain, pelting the plain, — / Heigh-ho! the wild, impetuous rain!

  • Dear Love, bear with me that so long / My harp has lain unstrung, unswept, / Since to have waked it while it slept / Had been to do my nature wrong.
