At a Glance
How that red rain hath made the harvest grow! (Canto 3, stanza 17, line 7)
Rilla of Ingleside, chapter 23 (“‘red rain’ of Langemarck and Verdun”).
There was a sound of revelry by night,
And Belgium’s capital had gather’d then
Her Beauty and her Chivalry, and bright
The lamps shone o’er fair women and brave men;
A thousand hearts beat happily; and when
Music arose with its voluptuous swell,
Soft eyes look’d love to eyes which spake again,
And all went merry as a marriage bell;
But hush! hark! a deep sound strikes like a rising knell! (Canto 3, stanza 21)
Rilla of Ingleside, chapter 4 (“there was a sound of revelry by night”; “Hush! Hark! a deep sound strikes like a rising knell”).
I loved her from my boyhood; she to me
Was as a fairy city of the heart,
Rising like water-columns from the sea,
Of joy the sojourn, and of wealth the mart; (Canto 4, stanza 18, lines 1–4)
Rilla of Ingleside, chapter 27 (‘a fairy city of the heart’).
But all is over – I am one the more
To baffled millions which have gone before. (Stanza 13, lines 7–8)
Rilla of Ingleside, chapter 28 (“‘but one more / To baffled millions who have gone before’”).
