Sivu 156 - And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion; and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
Sivu 224 - Lastly, came Winter cloathed all in frize, Chattering his teeth for cold that did him chill...
Sivu 227 - And after her came jolly June, arrayd All in greene leaves, as he a player were; Yet in his time he wrought as well as playd, That by his plough-yrons mote right well appeare...
Sivu 234 - Then came old January, wrapped well In many weeds to keep the cold away; Yet did he quake and quiver, like to quell, And blowe his nayles to warme them if he may; For they were numbd with holding all the day An hatchet keene, with which he felled wood...
Sivu 224 - Then came the Autumne all in yellow clad, As though he joye'd in his plentious store, Laden with fruits that made him laugh, full glad That he had banisht hunger, which to-fore Had by the belly oft him pinche'd sore : Upon his head a wreath, that was enrold With ears of corne of every sort, he bore ; And in his hand a sickle he did holde, To reape the ripened fruits the which the earth had yold.
Sivu 231 - Then came October full of merry glee; For yet his noule was totty of the must. Which he was treading in the wine-fats see.
Sivu 96 - Pype, iolly shepheard, pype thou now apace Unto thy love that made thee low to lout ; Thy love is present there with thee in place ; Thy love is there advaunst to be another grace.
Sivu 244 - I well consider all that ye have sayd, And find that all things stedfastnes doe hate And changed be: yet being rightly wayd, They are not changed from their first estate; But by their change their being doe dilate: And turning to themselves at length againe, Doe worke their owne perfection so by fate: Then over them Change doth not rule and raigne; But they raigne over Change, and doe their states maintaine.
Sivu 236 - Yet is he nought but parting of the breath; Ne ought to see, but like a shade to weene, Unbodied, unsoul'd, unheard, unseene...
Sivu 265 - About us daylie, to worke our decay; That none, except a God, or God him guide, May them avoyde, or remedie provide.
