"The simile sets two ideas side by side," said F.L. Een as she spake they heard the musical jangle of sleigh-bells. Rose on the ardor of prayer, like Elijah ascending to heaven. Pleasantly rose next morn the sun on the village of Grand-Pr.Pleasantly gleamed in the soft, sweet air the Basin of Minas,the ships, with their wavering shadows, were riding at anchor.Life had long been astir in the village, and clamorous laborKnocked with its hundred hands at the golden gates of the morning.Now from the country around, from the farms and neighboring hamlets,Came in their holiday dresses the blithe Acadian peasants.Many a glad good-morrow and jocund laugh from the young folkMade the bright air brighter, as up from the numerous meadows,Where no path could be seen but the track of wheels in the greensward,Group after group appeared, and joined, or passed on the highway.Long ere noon, in the village all sounds of labor were silenced.Thronged were the streets with people; and noisy groups at the house-doorsSat in the cheerful sun, and rejoiced and gossiped together.Every house was an inn, where all were welcomed and feasted;For with this simple people, who lived like brothers together,All things were held in common, and what one had was another's.Yet under Benedict's roof hospitality seemed more abundant:For Evangeline stood among the guests of her father;Bright was her face with smiles, and words of welcome and gladnessFell from her beautiful lips, and blessed the cup as she gave it. So death flooded life, and, o'erflowing its natural margin. As apart by the window she stood, with her hand in her lover's. Many a farewell word and sweet good-night on the door-step. Thereupon the priest, her friend and father-confessor. Then there were voices heard as of two men talking together. Basil was Benedict's friend. And, as she gazed from the window, she saw serenely the moon pass. Seizes the hills in his hands, and drags them down to the ocean. Long, and thin, and gray were the locks that shaded his temples; But, as he lay in the in morning light, his face for a moment. All was silent within; and in vain at the door and the windows. "As apart by the window she stood, with her hand in her lover's,Blushing Evangeline heard the words that her father had spoken,And, as they died on his lips, the worthy notary entered. Who in journeyings often surrender their lives to his service. Spread to a brackish lake, the silver stream of existence. All the tale of her love, with its pleasures, and pains, and reverses. And, though their hearts were sad at times and their bodies were weary, Hope still guided them on, as the magic Fata Morgana. Meanwhile John Estaugh departed across the sea, and departing. For the poor in the village. As, when the air is serene in the sultry solstice of summer, Suddenly gathers a storm, and the deadly sling of the hailstones. Thronged erelong was the church with men. the poor, who had neither friends nor attendants,Crept away to die in the almshouse, home of the homeless.Then in the suburbs it stood, in the midst of meadows and woodlands;Now the city surrounds it; but still, with its gateway and wicketMeek, in the midst of splendor, its humble walls seem to echoSoftly the words of the Lord:"The poor ye always have with you. "Then there were voices heard at the door, and footsteps approachingSounded upon the stairs and the floor of the breezy veranda.It was the neighboring Creoles and small Acadian planters,Who had been summoned all to the house of Basil the Herdsman.Merry the meeting was of ancient comrades and neighbors:Friend clasped friend in his arms; and they who before were as strangers,Meeting in exile, became straightway as friends to each other,Drawn by the gentle bond of a common country together.But in the neighboring hall a strain of music, proceedingFrom the accordant strings of Michael's melodious fiddle,Broke up all further speech. Ever silent, or speaking only of thee and his troubles. Lowly and meek in spirit, and patiently suffering all things. Died, and was doomed to haunt unseen the chambers of children; And how on Christmas eve the oxen talked in the stable. Hearty his welcome was, as he led his guests to the garden. Under the Sycamore-tree were hives overhung by a penthouse. "Far to the north he has gone," continued the priest; "but in autumn, When the chase is done, will return again to the Mission. Just where the woodlands met the flowery surf of the prairie. "Down with the tyrants of England! In his chamber all alone,Kneeling on the floor of stone,Prayed the Monk in deep contritionFor his sins of indecision,Prayed for greater self-denialIn temptation and in trial;It was noonday by the dial,And the Monk was all alone. Having the glare of the burning village for funeral torches. We are the World Summary. and died away into silence. So seemed it wise and well unto all; and betimes on the morrow. Carried hid in his heart a secret sacred and precious, Filling its chambers with fragrance, and seeming to him in its sweetness. how often thine eyes have looked on the woodlands around me!Ah! Passions long extinguished, and hopes long dead and abandoned, As the emigrant's way o'er the Western desert is marked by. O lost hours and days in which we might have been happy! Not as crucified and slain,Not in agonies of pain,Not with bleeding hands and feet,Did the Monk his Master see;But as in the village street,In the house or harvest-field,Halt and lame and blind he healed,When he walked in Galilee. There the long-absent pastor regain his flock and his sheepfold. Then he beheld, in a dream, once more the home of his childhood; Green Acadian meadows, with sylvan rivers among them. Slowly, slowly, slowly the days succeeded each other,Days and weeks and months; and the fields of maize that were springingGreen from the ground when a stranger she came, now waving above her,Lifted their slender shafts, with leaves interlacing, and formingCloisters for mendicant crows and granaries pillaged by squirrels.Then in the golden weather the maize was husked, and the maidensBlushed at each blood-red ear, for that betokened a lover,But at the crooked laughed, and called it a thief in the corn-field.Even the blood-red ear to Evangeline brought not her lover."Patience!" The poetry The Village Blacksmith is lovely, intentional, smart, and moving. "The Village Blacksmith" is a poem written by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, which was first published in the year 1840.The poem talks about a local blacksmith and his day-to-day life chores. Forth from the folds of a cloud, and one star follow her footsteps. Ah, how short are the days! Fear, that reigns with the tyrant, and envy, the vice of republics. Anon from the belfry, Softly the Angelus sounded, and over the roofs of the village. Come, take thy place on the settleClose by the chimney-side, which is always empty without thee;Take from the shelf overhead thy pipe and the box of tobacco;Never so much thyself art thou as when through the curlingSmoke of the pipe or the forge thy friendly and jovial face gleamsRound and red as the harvest moon through the mist of the marshes. But in the neighboring hall a strain of music, proceeding. Large and low was the roof; and on slender columns supported. Grew up together as brother and sister; and Father Felician, Priest and pedagogue both in the village, had taught them their letters. Sweetly over the village the bell of the Angelus sounded. Youthful he was and tall, and his cheeks aglow with the night air; And as he entered, Elizabeth rose, and, going to meet him. And, as they died on his lips, the worthy notary entered. Sweet on the summer air was the odor of flowers in the garden; And she paused on her way to gather the fairest among them. From the far-off hunting-grounds of the cruel Camanches. Moved on their way, unperturbed by the wrongs and sorrows of mortals. Pausing and looking back to gaze once more on their dwellings. Into the sounding pails the foaming streamlets descended. Day with its burden and heat had departed, and twilight descending. 99.99 + 3.49 Postage. Kindly and oft, and recalling the past, while Basil, enraptured. The common oxymoron phrase is a combination of an adjectiveproceeded by a noun . (2) Rikki-tikki knew that he must catch her, or all the trouble would begin again. Forthwith I remembered Queen Candaces eunuch,How on the way that goes down from Jerusalem unto Gaza,Reading Esaias the Prophet, he journeyed, and spake unto Philip,Praying him to come up and sit in his chariot with him.So I greeted the man, and he mounted the sledge beside me,And as we talked on the way he told me of thee and thy homestead,How, being led by the light of the Spirit, that never deceiveth, There too the dove-cot stood, with its meek and innocent inmates, Murmuring ever of love; while above in the variant breezes. we never have sworn them allegiance!Death to these foreign soldiers, who seize on our homes and our harvests! Down to the river's brink, where the boatmen already were waiting. the farmer exclaimed, as their footsteps paused on the threshold. Thronged were the streets with people; and noisy groups at the house-doors. Then came the hour of sleep, deaths counterfeit, nightly rehearsalOf the great Silent Assembly, the Meeting of shadows, where no man Speaketh, but all are still, and the peace and rest are unbroken!Silently over that house the blessing of slumber descended.But when the morning dawned, and the sun uprose in his splendor,Breaking his way through clouds that encumbered his path in the heavens,Joseph was seen with his sled and oxen breaking a pathwayThrough the drifts of snow; the horses already were harnessed,And John Estaugh was standing and taking leave at the threshold,Saying that he should return at the Meeting in May; while abovethem Hannah the housemaid, the homely, was looking out of the attic,Laughing aloud at Joseph, then suddenly closing the casement,As the bird in a cuckoo-clock peeps out of its window,Then disappears again, and closes the shutter behind it. Over the laws of the land, and the hearts and homes of the people. ASTL. So, in each pause of the song, with measured motion the clock clicked. Speechless at first they stood, then cried aloud in their anguish, "We shall behold no more our homes in the village of Grand-Pr!". Thus came the lovely spring with a rush of blossoms and music. Thereupon answered Hannah the housemaid, the thrifty, the frugal: Yea, they come and they tarry, as if thy house were a tavern; Open to all are its doors, and they come and go like the pigeons. He is honest and hardworking. And I remembered thy name, and thy father and mother in England. Alas! Then Elizabeth told her story again to John Estaugh. Then up rose from his seat by the fireside Basil the blacksmith. Somewhat beyond his years on his face was legibly written. When from the forest at night, through the starry silence, the wolves howled. Hushed by the scene he beholds, and the awful presence of sorrow. Not to be spoken lightly, nor in the presence of others; Them it concerneth not, only thee and me it concerneth.. Such as they sang of old on their own Acadian rivers. The smith in the poem is a happy man because he has found something that makes him feel useful. Silent, with heads uncovered, the travellers, nearer approaching. Drawn by the gentle bond of a common country together. Overwhelmed with the sight, yet speechless, the priest and the maiden. A breath from the region of spirits, Seemed to float in the air of night; and she felt for a moment. Hardly a moment between the two lights, the day and the lamplight; Yet how grand is the winter! Little she dreamed that below, among the trees of the orchard. Half-way down to the shore Evangeline waited in silence,Not overcome with grief, but strong in the hour of affliction,Calmly and sadly she waited, until the procession approached her,And she beheld the face of Gabriel pale with emotion.Tears then filled her eyes, and, eagerly running to meet him,Clasped she his hands, and laid her head on his shoulder, and whispered,"Gabriel! Then Elizabeth said, though still with a certain reluctance,As if impelled to reveal a secret she fain would have guarded:I will no longer conceal what is laid upon me to tell thee;I have received from the Lord a charge to love thee, John Estaugh., And John Estaugh made answer, surprised by the words she had spoken,Pleasant to me are thy converse, thy ways, thy meekness of spirit;Pleasant thy frankness of speech, and thy souls immaculate whiteness,Love without dissimulation, a holy and inward adorning.But I have yet no light to lead me, no voice to direct me.When the Lords work is done, and the toil and the labor completedHe hath appointed to me, I will gather into the stillnessOf my own heart awhile, and listen and wait for his guidance.. ", But made answer the reverend man, and he smiled as he answered,. Shielding the house from storms, on the north, were the barns and the farm-yard. Lowing of cattle and peals of laughter were heard in the farm-yard. In that delightful land which is washed by the Delaware's waters,Guarding in sylvan shades the name of Penn the apostle,Stands on the banks of its beautiful stream the city he founded.There all the air is balm, and the peach is the emblem of beauty,And the streets still re-echo the names of the trees of the forest,As if they fain would appease the Dryads whose haunts they molested.There from the troubled sea had Evangeline landed, an exile,Finding among the children of Penn a home and a country.There old Rene Leblanc had died; and when he departed,Saw at his side only one of all his hundred descendants.Something at least there was in the friendly streets of the city,Something that spake to her heart, and made her no longer a stranger;And her ear was pleased with the Thee and Thou of the Quakers,For it recalled the past, the old Acadian country,Where all men were equal, and all were brothers and sisters.So, when the fruitless search, the disappointed endeavor,Ended, to recommence no more upon earth, uncomplaining,Thither, as leaves to the light, were turned her thoughts and her footsteps.As from a mountain's top the rainy mists of the morningRoll away, and afar we behold the landscape below us,Sun-illumined, with shining rivers and cities and hamlets,So fell the mists from her mind, and she saw the world far below her,Dark no longer, but all illumined with love; and the pathwayWhich she had climbed so far, lying smooth and fair in the distance.Gabriel was not forgotten. His hair is crisp, and black, and long; His face is like the tan; His brow is wet with honest sweat, He earns whate'er he can, And looks the whole world in the face, For he owes not any man. we never have sworn them allegiance! Vainly he strove to whisper her name, for the accents unuttered. Brighter than these, shone the faces of friends in the glimmering lamplight. Swelled and obeyed its power, like the tremulous tides of the ocean. Also a simile between the comparison of his daughters voice to his wifes voice . Till it stopped at the door, with sudden creaking of runners. And in a meadow green and broad, by the bank of a river. Or has an angel passed, and revealed the truth to my spirit?". This annual event gathers together the College literary community for a night to recognise and celebrate the creative writing talent of its students with awards presented for best in prose and poetry writing over the past year. Said with a sigh to the friendly priest,"O Father Felician! Down from its native hills, a peaceful and bountiful river. Garlands of Spanish moss and of mystic mistletoe flaunted. Therefore accomplish thy labor of love, till the heart is made godlike, Purified, strengthened, perfected, and rendered more worthy of heaven!". All sounds were in harmony blended. Billowy bays of grass ever rolling in shadow and sunshine. Suffered no waste nor loss, though filling the air with aroma. Darted a light, swift boat, that sped away o'er the water. Lifted her golden crown above the heads of the boatmen. And children coming home from school Look in at the open door; They love to see the flaming forge, Rudely carved was the porch, with seats beneath; and a footpath. All who fled from the cold, exultant, laughing at winter! she was fair, exceeding fair to behold, as she stood withNaked snow-white feet on the gleaming floor of her chamber!Little she dreamed that below, among the trees of the orchard,Waited her lover and watched for the gleam of her lamp and her shadow.Yet were her thoughts of him, and at times a feeling of sadnessPassed o'er her soul, as the sailing shade of clouds in the moonlightFlitted across the floor and darkened the room for a moment.And, as she gazed from the window, she saw serenely the moon passForth from the folds of a cloud, and one star follow her footsteps,As out of Abraham's tent young Ishmael wandered with Hagar! Down through whose broken vaults it fell as through chinks in a ruin. Dwells another race, with other customs and language. the priest would say; "have faith, and thy prayer will be answered!Look at this vigorous plant that lifts its head from the meadow,See how its leaves are turned to the north, as true as the magnet;This is the compass-flower, that the finger of God has plantedHere in the houseless wild, to direct the traveller's journeyOver the sea-like, pathless, limitless waste of the desert.Such in the soul of man is faith. Busily plied the freighted boats; and in the confusion, Wives were torn from their husbands, and mothers, too late, saw their children. how often thy feet have trod this path to the prairie!

Triumphs; and well I remember a story, that often consoled me, When as a captive I lay in the old French fort at Port Royal.

Meanwhile had spread in the village the tidings of ill, and on all sides. How soon the night overtakes us!In the old country the twilight is longer; but here in the forestSuddenly comes the dark, with hardly a pause in its coming,Hardly a moment between the two lights, the day and the lamplight;Yet how grand is the winter!

When Brown and his small, integrated army of 21 men invaded Harpers Ferry and took over the federal armory, arsenal, and rifle factory, it . Struggled together like foes in a burning city.

Much they marvelled to see the wealth of the cidevant blacksmith. Oft on autumnal eves, when without in the gathering darkness. Than our fathers in forts, besieged by the enemy's cannon.

And they rode slowly along through the woods, conversing together. The house itself was of timbersHewn from the cypress-tree, and carefully fitted together.Large and low was the roof; and on slender columns supported,Rose-wreathed, vine-encircled, a broad and spacious veranda,Haunt of the humming-bird and the bee, extended around it.At each end of the house, amid the flowers of the garden,Stationed the dove-cots were, as love's perpetual symbol,Scenes of endless wooing, and endless contentions of rivals.Silence reigned o'er the place.

They stood by the graves, and hung on the headstonesGarlands of autumn-leaves and evergreens fresh from the forest.Then came the guard from the ships, and marching proudly among themEntered the sacred portal.
