Seite 184 - ... child shall we again behold her ; For when with raptures wild In our embraces we again enfold her, She will not be a child ; But a fair maiden, in her Father's mansion. Clothed with celestial grace ; And beautiful with all the soul's expansion Shall we behold her face. And though at times impetuous with emotion And anguish long suppressed, The swelling heart heaves moaning like the ocean* That cannot be at rest, — We will be patient, and assuage the feeling We may not wholly stay ; By silence...
Seite 240 - But during the last three centuries, to stunt the growth of the human mind has been her chief object.
