Sivu 67 - There, held in holy passion still, Forget thyself to marble, till With a sad leaden downward cast Thou fix them on the earth as fast: And join with thee calm Peace, and Quiet, Spare Fast, that oft with gods doth diet, And hears the Muses in a ring Aye round about Jove's altar sing...
Sivu 7 - COCK ROBIN got up early, At the break of day, And went to Jenny's window, To sing a roundelay. He sang Cock Robin's love To the pretty Jenny Wren, And when he got unto the end, Then he began again.
Sivu 5 - And prayed that every fault they'd make me know. The first did her most anxious care bestow To impress one point from which I ne'er should go : " Upon a good beginning must be based A good rondeau." Zeal bid the other's choicest language glow : She softly said, "Recount your weal or woe, Your every subject free from pause or haste : Ne'er let your hero fail, nor be disgraced.
Sivu 85 - I A lambent beam from heaven descending, Meets it as it floats above ; And with it all serenely blending, Cheers it from the throne of love. And see those most Divine Creations Lead it upwards through the sky : Oh, whence those fairest emanations, Guides to immortality ? The road from life were surely fair Could guides like those our journey share ! Still they rise : still higher — higher. Heaven's bright portals now are nigher. The soul, releas'd from mortal dwelling, Through the realm of space...
Sivu 89 - twas CHARITY who fill'd ' Thy heart with love : 'twas I instill'd ' Thy yearning for a heaven above : ' FAITH, HoPE, sustain'd ; 1 bid thee love. ' Now HoPE and FAITH, requir'd no more, " To earth again descend ; ' But CHARITY with thee will soar, ' With thee will cross heaven's threshold o'er, " And still on thee attend. ' Come, come with me ; I still will guide. ' Before the Almighty, side by side, ' We'll bend in love, we'll bend in praise. ' FAITH, HoPE, dear friends of former days, ' Farewell,...
Sivu 14 - fends thee too from care and woe : With kind good will doeh thy high bosom glow ; Modest in every action ; loved and known Of all the world. No need to praise where all do praise thee so; Thy kindness bids thy rank to others bow ; Grace, graciousness, in all thy deeds is shown ; No slightest blame on thee was ever thrown. Lady most blest! where virtues most do show Of all the world.
Sivu 38 - French word, it is so no longer ; and that although our neighbours may have originally lent us the word, they have never since been under the necessity of reclaiming it — because words are the signs of ideas.
Sivu 55 - PERE LA CHAISE. I wander'd mid the peaceful tombs, Where groves of cypress rise, O'er many a fragrant rose that blooms, While death beneath it lies. A sportive maiden pass'd beside, And to her wooing partner cried, Oh ! dearest, say if I were dead Sweet flowers should deck my lonely bed. A thoughtless smile replied. Again I view'd the silent ground, And long my steps delayed, For there a recent grave I found, A mourner o'er it prayed. That weeping youth again I knew, And saw him o'er the marble strew...
Sivu 88 - tis thine ! Her pledge redeem'd, " HOPE bids thee now a last farewell. " The light that through yon portal gleam'd, " Bids me retire, nor seek to dwell " Where CERTAINTY must HOPE dispel. " Farewell, dear pupil, once again ! " And from thy heavenly seat of joy, " Look down on her whose fond employ " Has been to soothe thine every pain " And guide thee where meek, lowly HOPE were vain.
Sivu 89 - But CHARITY with thee will soar, " With thee will cross heaven's threshold o'er, " And still on thee attend. " Come, come with me ; I still will guide. " Before the Almighty, side by side, " We'll bend in love, we'll bend in praise. " FAITH, HOPE, dear friends of vanished days ! " Farewell, farewell ! Come, dear one ! come,
