THE GOLDEN TREASURY OF THE BEST SONGS AND LYRICAL POEMS IN
THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE SELECTED AND ARRANGED BY FRANCIS
TURNER PALGRAVE WITH ADDITIONAL POEMS AND WITH NOTES BY C. B.
PREFACE THIS little Collcction differs , it is believed , from others in the attempt
made to include in it all the best original Lyrical pieces and Songs in our
language , by writers not living , -and none beside the best . Many familiar verses
... pallid blue , The little daisy that at evening closes , The virgin lily and the
primrose true , With store of vermeil roses , To deck their bridegrooms ' posies
Against the bridal day , which was not long : Sweet Thames ! run softly , till I end
my song ...
... they bred of summer's heat , they say , In sweetest season , when each flower
and weed The earth did fresh array ; So fresh they seem'd as day , Even as their
bridal day , which was not long : Sweet Thames ! run softly , till I end my song .
... And let your bed with pleasures chaste abound , That fruitful issue may to you
afford Which may your foes confound , And make your joys redound Upon your
bridal day , which is not long : Sweet Thames ! run softly , till I end my song .
