Seite 224 - Sky, mountains, river, winds, lake, lightnings! Ye! With night, and clouds, and thunder, and a soul To make these felt and feeling, well may be Things that have made me watchful ; the far roll Of your departing voices, is the knoll Of what in me is sleepless, — if I rest. But where of ye, oh tempests ! is the goal ? Are ye like those within the human breast? Or do ye find, at length, like eagles, some high nest?
Seite 15 - Breakfast was cleared away at an early hour; then day of good things happened — "the meeting of the ships." "When, o'er the silent seas alone For days and nights we've cheerless gone, Oh, they who've felt it know how sweet, Some sunny morn a sail to meet! "Sparkling at once is every eye, 'Ship ahoy! ship ahoy!' our joyful cry; While answering back the sound we hear, 'Ship ahoy! ship ahoy! what cheer? what cheer?

If Lucy is lowsie as some volke miscall it, Then sing lowsie Lucy whatever befall it speare did not wait to brave the united puissance of a Knight of the Shire and a country attorney.
Seite 4 - Here landeth as true a subject, being a prisoner, as ever landed at these stairs ; and before thee, O God! I speak it, having no other friends but thee alone.
Seite 7 - Was the Lord displeased against the rivers? was thine anger against the rivers? was thy wrath against the sea, that thou didst ride upon thine horses and thy chariots of salvation?
Seite 31 - There be many smiths in the towne, that use to make knives and all manner of cutting tools, and many lorimers that make bittes, and a great many naylours ; so that a great part of the town is maintained by smiths, who have their iron and sea coal out of Staffordshire...
Seite 60 - tis not beauty lures thy vows; Rather ambition's gilded crown Makes thee forget thy humble spouse. "Then, Leicester, why, again I plead (The injured surely may repine) — Why didst thou wed a country maid, When some fair princess might be thine? "Why didst thou praise my humble charms, And, oh! then leave them to decay? Why didst thou win me to thy arms, Then leave me to mourn the livelong day?
Seite 7 - The sun and moon stood still in their habitation: at the light of thine arrows they went, and at the shining of thy glittering spear. Thou didst march through the land in indignation, thou didst thresh the heathen in anger.
