Sivu 75 - The portals with sky-tinctur'd gems emblazed : There on a lofty throne shall Virtue stand ; To her the youth of Delaware shall kneel ; And, when her smiles rain plenty o'er the land, Bow, tyrants, bow beneath th...
Sivu 161 - ... induced many of the wisest among the ancients, and some of the most enlightened among the moderns, to believe that the whole creation was rather an energy than a work, by which the Infinite Being, who is present at all times and in all places, exhibits to the minds of His creatures a set of perceptions, like a wonderful picture or piece of music, always varied, yet always uniform...
Sivu 86 - Come, charming maid ! and hear thy poet sing, Thyself the rose, and he the bird of spring; Love bids him sing, and Love will be obey'd. Be gay: too soon the flowers of spring will fade.
Sivu 51 - But when in death's cold arms entranc'd she lay, (Ah, ever dear, yet ever fatal day !*) O'er all the air a direful gloom was spread ; Pale were the meads, and all their blossoms dead ; The clouds of April shed a baleful dew ; All nature wore a veil of deadly hue.

Celestial sounds I hear! "Knowst thou not me?" Ah, spare a mortal ear! "Behold" — My swimming eyes entranc'd I raise, But oh!

She rais'd her head, astonish'd, to the skies, And veil'd with trembling hands her aching eyes ; When through the yielding air she saw from far A goddess gliding in a golden car, That soon descended on the flowery lawn, By two fair yokes of starry peacocks drawn : A thousand nymphs with many a sprightly glance Form'd round the radiant wheels an airy dance, Celestial shapes ! in...
