Seite 229 - She looks a sea Cybele, fresh from ocean, Rising with her tiara of proud towers At airy distance, with majestic motion, A ruler of the waters and their powers.
Seite 135 - DUKE'S PALACE. [Enter DUKE, CURIO, LORDS; MUSICIANS attending.] DUKE. If music be the food of love, play on, Give me excess of it; that, surfeiting, The appetite may sicken and so die.— That strain again;— it had a dying fall; O, it came o'er my ear like the sweet south, That breathes upon a bank of violets, Stealing and giving odour.— Enough; no more; 'Tis not so sweet now as it was before.

Seite 17 - A blending of all beauties ; streams and dells, Fruit, foliage, crag, wood, corn-field, mountain, vine, And chiefless castles, breathing stern farewells From grey but leafy walls, where Ruin greenly dwells.
Seite 236 - Mark's on an evening ; see its fine square in all its marble beauty — the domes and minarets of its old church ; the barbaric gloom of the Doge's palace ; its proud towering Campanile ; look upon the famous Corinthian horses, and think of their emigration, on the winged lion of the Piraeus ; walk in the illumination of its long line of...
