It did not sound exaggerated to Ruth to hear him thus made much of. It was only very sweet and true.

Attuned to strange passion, and full-utter’d groans;

Attuned to strange passion, and full-utter’d groans;

"You do not tire me, Rose," she said gravely. And the same expression rested upon her face till evening.

Attuned to strange passion, and full-utter’d groans;

Monday night had come. As Ruth half hid a pale yellow bud in her heavy, low-coiled hair, the gravity of her mien seemed to deepen.
