Sivu 2 - In flower of youth and beauty's pride. Happy, happy, happy pair! None but the brave, None but the brave, None but the brave deserves the fair...
Sivu 3 - Flush'd with a purple grace, He shows his honest face; Now give the hautboys breath: he comes! he comes! Bacchus, ever fair and young, Drinking joys did first ordain ; Bacchus...
Sivu 104 - Though harsh the precept, yet the preacher charm'd. For letting down the golden chain from high, He drew his audience upward to the sky; And oft, with holy hymns, he charm'd their ears: (A music more melodious than the spheres.) For David left him, when he went to rest, His lyre; and after him he sung the best.
Sivu 213 - My galligaskins, that have long withstood The winter's fury, and encroaching frosts, By time subdued (what will not time subdue !) An horrid chasm...

Sivu 169 - And listen'd for the queen of all the quire ; Fain would I hear her heavenly voice to sing, And wanted yet an omen to the spring. " Attending long in vain, I took the way, Which through a path, but scarcely printed, lay ; In narrow mazes oft it seem'd to meet, . And look'd as lightly ^press'd by fairy feet.
Sivu 274 - FAR in a wild, unknown to public view, From youth to age a reverend hermit grew ; The moss his bed, the cave his humble cell, His food the fruits, his drink the crystal well : Remote from man, with God he pass'd the days, Prayer all his business, all his pleasure praise.
