Seite 15 - Such as a lamp, whose life does fade away; Or as the moone, cloathed with clowdy night, Does shew to him that walkes in feare and sad affright.
Seite 113 - As pale and wan as ashes was his looke; His body leane and meagre as a rake; And skin all withered like a dryed rooke; Thereto as cold and drery as a snake ; That seemd to tremble evermore and quake: All in a canvas thin he was bedight, And girded with a belt of twisted brake: Upon his head he wore an helmet light, Made of a dead mans skull, that seemd a ghastly sight: XXIII.
Seite 291 - Daily they grow, and daily forth are sent Into the world, it to replenish more; Yet is the stocke not lessened nor spent, But still remaines in everlasting store, As it at first created was of yore...
Seite 168 - All suddenly out of the thickest brush, Upon a milkwhite Palfrey all alone, A goodly Lady did foreby2 them rush, Whose face did seeme as cleare as Christall stone, And eke through feare as white as whales bone: Her garments all were wrought of beaten gold, And all her steed with tinsell trappings shone, Which fledd so fast, that nothing mote him hold, And scarse them leasure gave, her passing to behold.
