Sivu 158 - What time the daisy decks the green, Thy certain voice we hear; Hast thou a star to guide thy path, Or mark the rolling year? Delightful visitant ! with thee I hail the time of flowers, And hear the sound of music sweet, From birds among the bowers.
Sivu 158 - HAIL, beauteous stranger of the wood, Attendant on the spring ! Now heav'n repairs thy rural seat, And woods thy welcome sing. Soon as the daisy decks the green, Thy certain voice we hear : Hast thou a star to guide thy path, Or mark the rolling year...
Sivu 116 - Lengthen'd o'er the level ground. Where the rising forest spreads Shelter for the lordly dome, To their high-built airy beds, See the rooks returning home.

Sivu 63 - Where the rising forest spreads Shelter for the lordly dome, To their high-built airy beds, See the rooks returning home.

Sir John Lawrence supported them all, as well as the needy who were sick, at first by expending his own fortune, till subscriptions could be solicited and received from all parts of the nation.
Sivu 362 - Celeiis; but this story is unknown to Homer. According to a still later legend, she plunged her son into the Styx, and thereby rendered him invulnerable in every part except the heel by which she held him. Like all noble heroes, Achilles was instructed by Chiron, under whom he acquired such wonderful skill in all feats of strength and agility that he soon surpassed all his contemporaries. In addition to Chiron, Homer names Phoenix, the son of Amyntor, as the instructor of the youthful hero.
Sivu 307 - ... us. They were brought into Europe from the banks of the Phasis, a river of Colchis, in Asia Minor ; and from whence they still retain their name. Next to the peacock, they are the most beautiful of birds, as well for the vivid colour of their plumes, as for their happy mixtures and variety. It is far beyond the power of the pencil to draw any thing so glossy, so bright, or points...
Sivu 22 - I "m afraid I 'm not in the humor just now to give it my best suffrages. You 've seen, I doubt not, something of the treatment I have met with from the Press for the last few weeks ; not very generous usage, — not very just.
