QUIET HOURS

10

A COLLECTION OF POEMS, MEDITATIVE

AND RELIGIOUS.

FIRST AND SECOND SERIES.

“Such a book as this seems to us much better adapted than any formal book of devotion to beget a calm and prayerful spirit in the reader. It will no doubt become a dear companion to many earnestly religious people.” – Christian Register.

“ Thousands of thoughtful and devout minds have been helped, comforted, and strengthened by the little volume of poetical selections, published under the title of ' Quiet Hours,' some years since; and these and many more will welcome a new volume, published under the same title, constructed on the same plan, and breathing the same earnest and gentle spirit. This second series of “Quiet Hours,' like the first, bears the imprint of Roberts Bros. It is contained in a dainty little volume of the Little Classic style, prettily printed and bound; and there are not far from two hundred pieces in it, grouped under the heads,

Nature,' “Morning and Evening,' 'Inward Strife,' 'Life and Duty,' * Prayer and Aspiration,' • Trust and Adoration,' 'Heaven and the Saints,' and Miscellaneous.' The poems are chosen with exquisite taste ; their range is broad, and their tone is clear and true.” - Boston Journal.

"Quiet Hours' is the appropriate title which some unnamed compiler has given to a collection of musings of many writers, - a nosegay made up of some slighter. choicer, and more delicate flowers from the garden of the poets. Emerson, Chadwick, Higginson, Arnold, Whittier, and Clough are represented, as well as Coleridge, Browning, Wordsworth, and Tennyson ; and the selections widely vary in character, ranging from such as relate to the moods and aspects of nature, to voices of the soul when most deeply stirred.” — - Congregationalist.

QUIET HOURS.

A COLLECTION OF POEMS.

First Series.

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.”

J. G. WHITTIER.
