A Collection of Poems.
"Drop Thy still dews of quietness,
Till all our strivings cease;
Take from our souls the strain and stress,
And let our ordered lives confess
The beauty of Thy peace."

IN preparing this volume, the compiler has been careful not to change the author's language in any case. Omissions, however, have been made as seemed desirable; and the poems thus abbreviated are indicated, in the Index of First Lines, by asterisks. In some cases, the compiler has been favored with the latest corrections of the author, which will account for some variations from the current versions.
For permission to use copyrighted poems, acknowledgments are due to Messrs. J. R. Osgood & Co., Hurd & Houghton, E. P. Dutton & Co., and Henry Holt & Co. The compiler wishes to express her thanks, also, to the authors who have kindly permitted the use of their poems.
