- "The Poetical Works of Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Vol. I", Elizabeth Barrett Browning.
Whether chasing the butterfly or talking fond fancies to her birds, or whether with earnest, musing eyes watching the stars come forth, and the dark pine- trees gleam into silver; whether with airy daydreams and credulous wonder poring over the magic tales of Mirglip or Aladdin, or whether spellbound to awe by the solemn woes of Lear, or following the blind great bard into " the heaven of heavens, an earthly guest, to draw empyreal air,"- she obeyed but the honest and varying impulse in each change of her pliant mood, and would have ascribed with genuine humility to the vagaries of childhood that prompt gathering of pleasure, that quick- shifting sport of the fancy by which Nature binds to itself, in chains undulating as melody, the lively senses of genius.- "Lucretia, Complete", Edward Bulwer-Lytton.
Joyous and light, and fetterless through all 38 The blissful, infinite, empyreal space, If then thy spirit stoopeth to recall The ray it shed upon the human race, See where the ray had kindled from the dearth, Seeds that shall glad the garners of the earth!- "The Poetical Works of Sir Edward Bulwer Lytton, Bart. M.P.", Edward Bulwer Lytton.
