They meet but with unwholesome springs . . . 81
They who may tell love's wistful tale .... 243

Thine was a blessed flight ...... 339

Think not of the future, the prospect is uncertain . . 305
This world a hunting is . . . . . . . 65

Tho' I never get possession . . . . . .147

Thou art not faire, for all thy red and white . . . 17
Thou tide of glory which no rest dost know . . .107
Thou wert the first of all I knew ..... 350

Thrice happy you, whoe'er you are . . . . .178

Thy braes were bonnie, Yarrow stream .... 202

Thy soul within such silent pomp did keep . . . 12 1
Time ! I ever must complaine ..... 62
