Blow, bugle, blow, set the wild echoes flying: Blow, bugle; answer, echoes, dying, dying, dying. O hark, O hear ! how thin and clear, And thinner, clearer, farther going! O sweet and far, from cliff and scar, The horns of Elfland faintly blowing!
Seite 144 - Art should be independent of all clap-trap — should stand alone, and appeal to the artistic sense of eye or ear, without confounding this with emotions entirely foreign to it, as devotion, pity, love, patriotism, and the like.

Seite 97 - So sleep, for ever sleep, O marble Pair ! Or, if ye wake, let it be then, when fair On the carved western...
Seite 96 - Adonis which afterwards drew with infallible touch, as though they were alive, the dogs of Theseus : " My hounds are bred out of the Spartan kind, So flew'd, so sanded, and their heads are hung " • .
