An Excerpt from “Diamonds from Brilliant Minds”

An Excerpt from “Diamonds from Brilliant Minds,” published by Messers. Dempsey & Carroll in 1881.

In Twos

Somewhere in the world there hide,

Garden-gates that no one sees

Save they come in happy twos-

Not in ones, nor yet in threes.-W.C.GannettIMG_1539IMG_1545

In 1883, Messrs. Dempsey & Carroll published LOVE

LOVE’S POWER

Then, more than blest I fondly swear,

“No power can with Love’s power compare!

None in the starry court of Jove

Is greater than the god of Love!

If any can yet greater be,

Yes, my Neaera! Yes, ‘tis thee!”

Nott.
