Seite 106 - A warrior so bold and a virgin so bright Conversed as they sat on the green ; They gazed on each other with tender delight ; Alonzo the Brave was the name of the knight, The maid's was the fair Imogine. "And oh...
Seite 104 - Oh, Love! what is it in this world of ours Which makes it fatal to be loved? Ah why With cypress branches hast thou wreathed thy bowers, And made thy best interpreter a sigh? As those who dote on odours pluck the flowers, And place them on their breast — but place to die — Thus the frail beings we would fondly cherish Are laid within our bosoms but to perish.
Seite 18 - ... again in the few moments in which all this passed, the blood mounted to her temples ; she trembled, but her presence of mind did not forsake her ; she set down her lamp, and glided noiselessly down stairs. The door of her husband's study was half open, and the night wind blew coldly on her thinly clad form. She entered; that part of the room was wrapped in deepest shadow. She strove to speak ; she could not ; her tongue clove to the roof of her mouth ; her heart ceased to beat — her husband...

"No," said Blanche, but her voice trembled ; " I trust the love of some one far worthier than I am will reward you ; I repeat that I can • never forget that I am the sister of Lionel St. Aubyn.

After a moment's thought, he continued more tranquilly, " The barber Landri and Jehan Cornoailles are both dead; peace be to their souls ! May Heaven receive them in its mercy ! Will you accompany me to the Hospital, Claude Stocq, to see what can be done for this unfortunate lady ?" In spite of the unremitting attention of the celebrated...
Seite 232 - ... un teint pareil ce serait une abomination ! Blanche, who was growing very obstinate and indignant, became, however, more reconciled, when she found that she might keep her own curls and her own complexion ; and glancing at the mirror, was struck with a pleasureable surprise, as she marked the magic power of elegant and tasteful dress in heightening every charm. It was a bright and soft April morning, and the delicate tints which Carson suited to Blanche's complexion, made her look like a sweet...
Seite 137 - ... of proud notions, and unskilled in anything useful, accumulate, in such fearful numbers, in the English colonies in France, one or two being added to every family annually ; the burden little felt while they are infants, their fathers living, and their expenses trifling, but awful to ponder on when they must be driven out into the world, unfitted to cope with it, sensitive, proud, retiring, and with all their high aspirings, shrinking and acute sensibilities, hurried into the perpetual twilight...
Seite 232 - ... dress in heightening every charm. It was a bright and soft April morning, and the delicate tints which Carson suited to Blanche's complexion, made her look like a sweet personification of Spring. Blanche was obliged to own that there was a science in dress, of which she had never dreamt. Every thing had been studied, each little spring flower in the soft blonde cap which so well harmonized with her golden hair, and the faint blue of her pretty bonnet, the plume which gave a dignity and grace,...
