O THE sad day!
When friends shall shake their heads, and say
Of miserable me--
'Hark, how he groans!

Uphill, by Christina Georgina Rossetti

The rainbow sometimes, in its beautiful state,

In London, by Dora Wilcox



When I look out on London's teeming streets,
On grim grey houses, and on leaden skies,
My courage fails me, and my heart grows sick,
