Seite 15 - Dawson gaily cross'd the Green, In haste to see and happy to be seen : Her air, her manners, all who saw, admired ; Courteous though coy, and gentle though retired ; The joy of youth and...
Seite 16 - ... channels flow ; Serene her manner, till some sudden pain Frets the meek soul, and then she's calm again ;— Her broken pitcher to the pool she takes. And every step with cautious terror makes ; For not alone that infant in her arms, But nearer cause, her anxious soul alarms. With water hurthen'd then she picks her way. Slowly and cautious, in the clinging clay ; Till, in mid-green, she trusts a place unsound, And deeply plunges in th...
Seite 14 - And see the mid-day sun, with fervid ray, On their bare heads and dewy temples play; While some, with feebler...
Seite 94 - Garrick would make me take his ticket to go to the trial of the Duchess of Kingston ; a sight which, for beauty and magnificence, exceeded anything which those who were never present at a coronation, or a trial by peers, can have the least notion of.
Seite 93 - We have paid another visit to Miss Reynolds. She had sent to engage Dr. Percy (Percy's collection, — now you know him), quite a sprightly modern, instead of a rusty antique, as I expected. He was no sooner gone, than the most amiable and obliging of women (Miss Reynolds) ordered the coach, to take us to Dr. Johnson's very own house ; yes, Abyssinia's Johnson ! Dictionary Johnson !

Seite 95 - She soon recovered herself, and said with great composure, ' The goodness of God to me is inexpressible ; I desired to die, but it is His will that I should live, and He has convinced me He will not let my life be quite miserable, for He gives astonishing strength to my body, and grace to my heart ; neither do I deserve, but I am thankful for both.
Seite 15 - Two summers since, I saw at Lammas Fair The sweetest flower that ever blossom'd there, When Phoebe Dawson gaily cross'd the Green, In haste to see, and happy to be seen...
Seite 96 - I was going to add in the words of Pope, till I recollected that pence had a more appropriate meaning, and was as good a rhyme. This apostrophe broke from me on coming from the opera, the first I ever did, the last, I trust, I ever shall go to. For what purpose has the Lord of the universe made his creature man with a comprehensive mind ? why make him a little lower than the angels ? why give him the faculty of thinking, the powers of wit and memory ; and to crown all, an immortal and never-dying...
Seite 14 - Yet, urged along, and proudly loth to yield, He strives to join his fellows of the field; Till long-contending nature droops at last, Declining health rejects his poor repast, His cheerless spouse the coming danger sees, And mutual murmurs urge the slow disease.
