Seite 117 - Gul in her bloom? Where the citron and olive are fairest of fruit, And the voice of the nightingale never is mute, Where the tints of the earth, and the hues of the sky, In colour though varied, in beauty may vie...
Seite 137 - When two persons stand very near to each other, they can mutually hear their ordinary conversation ; when removed to a small distance, they are obliged to halloo ; and, when removed a little farther, cannot be heard at all.
