Sivu 119 - Where the great Sun begins his state Robed in flames and amber light, The clouds in thousand liveries dight; While the ploughman, near at hand, Whistles o'er the furrow'd land, And the milkmaid singeth blithe, And the mower whets his scythe, And every shepherd tells his tale Under the hawthorn in the dale.
Sivu 119 - While the ploughman, near at hand, Whistles o'er the furrow'd land, And the milkmaid singeth blithe, And the mower whets his scythe, And every shepherd tells his tale Under the hawthorn in the dale. Straight mine eye hath caught new pleasures Whilst the landscape round it measures...
Sivu 295 - But be assured, my dear lord, that if the minister be offended at the style in which I have spoken, do speak, and will speak, of public affairs, and on that account should refuse to give me the judgeship, I shall not be at all mortified, having already a very decent competence, without a debt or a care of any kind.
Sivu 311 - I will analyse and weigh with that suspicion and slowness of belief, which my experience, such as it is, has taught me ; and to be more particular, although I will be jealous of the regal part of our constitution, and always lend an arm towards restraining its proud waves within due limits ; yet my most vigilant and strenuous efforts shall be directed against any oligarchy that may...
Sivu 119 - Russet lawns, and fallows gray, Where the nibbling flocks do stray, Mountains on whose barren breast The labouring clouds do often rest: Meadows trim with daisies pied, Shallow brooks, and rivers wide. Towers and battlements it sees Bosom'd high in tufted trees, Where perhaps some beauty lies, The cynosure of neighbouring eyes.
Sivu 366 - I can justify myself in the liberty I take with you ; but confiding in your humanity and condescension, I beg if you have leisure for it, that you would be so kind as to breakfast with me, and assist me with your opinion and advice on the conduct of the Bengal bill. The natives of the East, to whose literature you have done so much justice, are particularly under your protection for their...
Sivu 364 - No longer then pore over dark Gothic pages, To cull a rude gibberish from Neatheam or Brooke ; Leave year-books and parchments to gray -bearded sages; Be nature and love and fair woman our book...
Sivu 353 - Our nights, beguii'd with pleasure, swam away;" Gay songs, and cheerful tales, deceiv'd the time, And circling goblets made a tuneful chime; Sweet was the draught, and sweet the blooming maid, Who touch'd her lyre beneath the fragrant shade ; We sipp'd till morning purpled every plain ; The damsels slumber'd...
Sivu 39 - Dear sister, WHEN I received your letter I was very concerned to hear the death of your friend Mr. Reynolds, which I consider as a piece of affliction common to us both. For although my knowledge of his name or character is of no long date, and though I never had any personal acquaintance...
Sivu 280 - ... with the dry elements of a very complicated science, than the history of the rules and ordinances by which nations, eminent for wisdom, and illustrious in arts, have regulated their civil polity : nor is this the only fruit that he may expect to reap from a general knowledge of foreign laws, both ancient and modern ; for whilst he indulges the liberal curiosity of a scholar in examining the customs and institutions of men, whose works have yielded him the highest delight, and whose actions have...
