INDEX OF FIRST LINES

A Chieftain to the Highlands bound
A child's a plaything for an hour
A flock of sheep that leisurely pass by
A slumber did my spirit seal
A sweet disorder in the dress
A weary lot is thine, fair maid
A wet sheet and a flowing sea
Absence, hear thou this protestation
Ah, Chloris! could I now but sit
Ah! County Guy, the hour is nigh
All in the Downs the fleet was moor'd
All thoughts, all passions, all delights
And are ye sure the news is true
And is this-Yarrow?- This the Stream
And thou art dead, as young and fair
And wilt thou leave me thus
Ariel to Miranda :- Take
Art thou pale for weariness
Art thou poor, yet hast thou golden slumbers
As it fell upon a day
As I was walking all alane
As slow our ship her foamy track
At the corner of Wood Street, when daylight appears
At the mid hour of night, when stars are weeping, I fly
Avenge, O Lord! Thy slaughter'd saints, whose bones
Awake, Aeolian lyre, awake
Awake, awake, my Lyre
Bards of Passion and of Mirth
Beauty sat bathing by a spring
Behold her, single in the field
Being your slave, what should I do but tend
Beneath these fruit-tree boughs that shed
Best and brightest, come away
Bid me to live, and I will live
Blest pair of Sirens, pledges of Heaven's joy
Blow, blow, thou winter wind
Bright Star! would I were steadfast as thou art
Call for the robin-redbreast and the wren
Calm was the day, and through the trembling air
Captain, or Colonel, or Knight in Arms
Care-charmer Sleep, son of the Sable Night

Come away, come away, Death
Come, cheerful day, part of my life to me
Come little babe, come silly soul
Come live with me and be my Love
Come, Sleep: 0) Sleep! the certain knoi of peace
Come unto these yellow sands
Crabbed Age and Youth
Cupid and my Campaspé play'd
Cyriack, whose grandsire, on the royal bench
Daughter of Jove, relentless power
Daughter to that good Earl, once President
Degenerate Douglas! oh, the unworthy lord
Doth then the world go thus, doth all thus move
Down in yon garden sweet and gay
Drink to me only with thine eyes
Duncan Gray cam here to woo
Earl March look'd on his dying child
Earth has not anything to show more fair
E’en like two little bank-dividing brooks
Eternal Spirit of the chainless Mind
Ethereal minstrel! pilgrim of the sky
Ever let the Fancy roam
Fain would I change that note
Fair Daffodils, we weep to see
Fair pledges of a fruitful tree
Farewell! thou art too dear for my possessing
Fear no more the heat o' the sun
Fine knacks for ladies, cheap, choice, brave and new
Follow thy fair sun, unhappy shadow
For ever, Fortune, wilt thou prove
Forget not yet the tried intent
Four Seasons fill the measure of the year
From Harinony, from heavenly Harmony
From Stirling Castle we had seen
Full fathom five thy father lies
Gather ye rose-buds while ye may
Gem of the crimson-colour'd Even
Get up, get up for shame! The blooming morn
Go fetch to me a pint o' wine
Go, lovely Rose
Hail thou most sacred venerable thing
Hail to thee, blithe Spirit
Happy the man, whose wish and care
Happy those early days, when I
Happy were he could finish forth his fate
He that loves a rosy cheek
He is gone on the mountain
Hence, all you vain delights
Hence, loathéd Melancholy
Hence, vain deluding Joys
He sang of God, the mighty source
High-way, since you my chief Parnassus be
