270 Like the first living leaf of some shed tree... 241 Like to Diana in her summer weed... Linger awhile upon some bending planks... 44 Live, live with me, and thou shalt see...... 253 Lochiel, Lochiel ! beware of the day...... 487 Lone flower, hemmed in with snows, and white as they..

310 Long years !—It tries the thrilling frame to bear.

499 Look how the flower, which lingeringly doth fade.
