Seite 59 - The oracles are dumb, No voice or hideous hum Runs through the arched roof in words deceiving. Apollo from his shrine Can no more divine, With hollow shriek the steep of Delphos leaving. No nightly trance or breathed spell Inspires the pale-eyed priest from the prophetic cell.
Seite 142 - How oft do they their silver bowers leave, To come to succour us that succour want ! How oft do they with golden pinions cleave The...
