Seite 331 - Night primeval and of Chaos old ! Before her, fancy's gilded clouds decay, And all its varying rainbows die away. Wit shoots in vain its momentary fires, The meteor drops, and in a flash expires. As one by one, at dread Medea's strain, The sick'ning stars fade off th' ethereal plain ; As Argus
Seite 295 - For thee we dim the eyes, and stuff the head With all such reading as was never read : For thee explain a thing till all men doubt it, And write about it, goddess, and about it : So spins the silkworm small its slender store, And labours till it clouds itself all o'er.
Seite 262 - Yet, yet a moment, one dim ray of light Indulge, dread Chaos, and eternal Night!

Seite 239 - Thence a new world to Nature's laws unknown, Breaks out refulgent, with a heav'n its own : Another Cynthia her new journey runs, And other planets circle other suns. The forests dance, the rivers upward rise 245 Whales sport in woods, and dolphins in the skies ; And last, to give the whole creation grace, Lo ! one vast egg produces human race. Joy fills his soul, joy innocent of thought ; What pow'r, he cries, what pow'r these wonders wrought?
Seite 263 - Swinging slow with sullen roar; Or if the air will not permit, Some still removed place will fit, Where glowing embers through the room Teach light to counterfeit a gloom...
