In the Seven Woods

By: Yeats, W. B.

Description: I have heard the pigeons of the Seven Woods Make their faint thunder, and the garden bees Hum in the lime tree flowers; and put away The unavailing outcries and the old bitterness That empty the heart. I have forgot awhile Tara uprooted, and new commonness Upon the throne and crying about the streets And hanging its paper flowers from post to post, Because it is alone of all things happy.

The Hero of Esthonia

By: Callow, Edward

Description: 1882. To rescue from oblivion some of the legends that delighted Mr. Callow's early years, and present them in an entertaining shape before the reader, had long been his wish; and if, by reading them, and interest in, and a desire to visit, the beautiful Isle of Man is created in any who now only know of its existence as an island somewhere in the Irish Sea, he would not have written this book in vain.
