- Quotes reported in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919).
- I know—yet my arms are empty,
That fondly folded seven,
And the mother heart within me
Is almost starved for heaven.
- Are the Children at Home.
- Never yet was a springtime,
Late though lingered the snow,
That the sap stirred not at the whisper
Of the southwind, sweet and low;
Never yet was a springtime
When the buds forgot to blow.
