Implores the passing tribute of a sigh.
Weep no more, nor sigh, nor groan, Sorrow calls no time that's gone; Violets plucked, the sweetest rain Makes not fresh nor grow again.
You must remember this,
A kiss is still a kiss,
A sigh is just a sigh;
The fundamental things apply,
As time goes by.
Whoe'er has traveled life's dull round, Where'er his stages may have been, May sigh to think he still has found The warmest welcome, at an inn.william shenstone
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I - I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.robert frost
Weep no more, nor sigh, nor groan, Sorrow calls no time that's gone: Violets plucked the sweetest rain Makes not fresh nor grow again.John Fletcher
Speed the soft intercourse from soul to soul, And waft a sigh from Indus to the Pole.Alexander Pope
Titan! to whom immortal eyes The sufferings of mortality Seen in their sad reality, Were not as things that gods despise; What was thy pity's recompense? A silent suffering, and intense; The rock, the vulture, and the chain, All that the proud can feel of pain, The agony they do not show, The suffocating sense of woe, Which speaks but in its loneliness, And then is jealous lest the sky Should have a listener, nor will sigh Until its voice is echoless.
Christ and His cross are not separable in this life, howbeit Christ and His cross part at heaven's door, for there is no house-room for crosses in heaven. One tear, one sigh, one sad heart, one fear, one loss, one thought of trouble cannot find lodging there.
Life! we've been long togetherThrough pleasant and through cloudy weather;Tis hard to part when friends are dear,—Perhaps 'twill cost a sigh, a tear.Then steal away, give little warning.Choose thine own time,Say not "Good-night," but in some brighter clime,Bid me "Good-morning."anna letitia barbauld
She's private to herself and best of knowledgeWhom she'll make so happy as to sigh for.Francis Beaumont
Consecrate the place and day To music and Cecilia. Let no rough winds approach, nor dare Invade the hallow'd bounds, Nor rudely shake the tuneful air, Nor spoil the fleeting sounds. Nor mournful sigh nor groan be heard, But gladness dwell on every tongue; Whilst all, with voice and strings prepar'd, Keep up the loud harmonious song, And imitate the blest above, In joy, and harmony, and love.joseph addison
She look'd down to blush, and she look'd up to sigh, With a smile on her lips, and a tear in her eye.walter scott
Whoe'er has travel'd life's dull round, Where'er his stages may have been, May sigh to think he still has found The warmest welcome, at an inn.
Lightly from fair to fair he flew, And loved to plead, lament, and sue, Suit lightly won, and short-lived pain, For monarchs seldom sigh in vain.walter scott
But then I sigh; and, with a piece of Scripture, Tell them that God bids us do good for evil.william shakespeare
I want free life, and I want fresh air; And I sigh for the canter after the cattle, The crack of the whip like shots in battle, The medley of horns, and hoofs, and heads That wars, and wrangles, and scatters and spreads; The green beneath and the blue above, And dash, and danger, and life and love.Frank Desprez
I hope that when the world comes to an end, I can breath a sigh of relief because there will be so much to look forward to.
sigh then, or frown, but leave (as in despair) Motive and end and moral in the air; Nice contradiction between fact and fact Will make the whole read human and exact.robert graves
sigh... they grow up so fast.
