Sivu 255 - This royal infant, (heaven still move about her !) Though in her cradle, yet now promises Upon this land a thousand thousand blessings, Which time shall bring to ripeness : she shall be (But few now living can behold that goodness) A pattern to all princes living with her, And all that shall succeed...
Sivu 367 - Is thy face like thy mother's, my fair child ! ADA ! sole daughter of my house and heart ? When last I saw thy young blue eyes they smiled, And then we parted, — not as now we part, But with a hope. — Awaking with a start, The waters heave around me ; and on high The winds lift up their voices : I depart, Whither I know not ; but the hour's gone by, When Albion's lessening shores could grieve or glad mine eye.
Sivu 75 - Blest be the Great\ for those they take away, And those they left me; for they left me GAY; Left me to see neglected Genius bloom, Neglected die, and tell it on his tomb : Of all thy blameless life the sole return My Verse, and QUEENSB'RY weeping o'er thy urn!
Sivu 62 - Whose rising forests, not for pride or show, But future buildings, future navies grow: Let his plantations stretch from down to down, First shade a country, and then raise a town. 190 You too proceed! make falling arts your care, Erect new wonders, and the old repair; Jones and Palladio to themselves restore, And be whate'er Vitruvius was before...
Sivu 366 - Whose buzz the witty and the fair annoys, Yet wit ne'er tastes, and beauty ne'er enjoys: So well-bred spaniels civilly delight In mumbling of the game they dare not bite.
Sivu 275 - ... cloth coat, all black besides; one hand generally in his bosom, the other, a cane in it, which he leans upon, under the skirts of his coat usually, that it may imperceptibly serve him as a support, when attacked by sudden tremors or...
Sivu 117 - Should Dennis publish, you had stabb'd your brother, Lampoon'd your Monarch, or debauch'd your mother ; Say, what revenge on Dennis can be had ? Too dull for laughter, for reply too mad : On one so poor you cannot take the law ; On one so old your sword you scorn to draw ; Uncag'd then let the harmless monster rage, Secure in dulness, madness, want, and age.
Sivu 384 - Statesman, yet friend to truth ! of soul sincere, In action faithful, and in honour clear ! Who broke no promise, serv'd no private end, Who gain'd no title, and who lost no friend ; Ennobled by himself, by all approv'd, Prais'd, wept, and honour'd, by the Muse he lov'd.
Sivu 162 - OF old, when Scarron his companions invited, Each guest brought his dish, and the feast was united ; If our landlord* supplies us with beef and with fish, Let each guest bring himself, and he brings the best dish : Our Dean...
Sivu 314 - Scarce once herself, by turns all womankind! Who, with herself, or others, from her birth Finds all her life one warfare upon earth: Shines in exposing knaves, and painting fools, Yet is, whate'er she hates and ridicules.
