To the witty, all clear mirrors, To the foolish their dark errors ; To the loving sprite, A secure delight : To the jealous his own false terrors.
Seite 266 - ... without ropes, to draw him out. After repeated attempts, they find themselves unable to do it, and call for more assistance. The game continues till all the company take part in it, when Dun is extricated of course ; and the merriment arises from the awkward and affected efforts of the rustics to lift the log, and from sundry arch contrivances to let the ends of it fall on one another's toes.
Seite 17 - fore the Britain men, Indent the land, with those pure traces They flow with, in their native graces. Invite them boldly to the shore; Their beauties shall be scorch'd no more : This sun is temperate, and refines All things on which his radiance shines.
