Seite 52 - And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Uzza, and he smote him, because he put his hand to the ark : and there he died before God.
Seite xii - To see this fleet upon the ocean move, Angels drew wide the curtains of the skies; And heaven, as if there wanted lights above, For tapers made two glaring comets rise.
Seite xiv - English fleet each ship resounds with joy, And loud applause of their great leader's fame : In fiery dreams the Dutch they still destroy, And, slumbering smile at the imagin'd flame.
Seite 57 - Even such a man, so faint, so spiritless, So dull, so dead in look, so woe-begone, Drew Priam's curtain in the dead of night...
Seite 34 - The ghosts of traitors from the bridge descend, With bold fanatic spectres to rejoice; About the fire into a dance they bend, And sing their sabbath notes with feeble voice.
Seite 11 - More fierce the important quarrel to decide: Like swans in long array his vessels show, Whose crests advancing do the waves divide. 6 ? They charge, recharge, and all along the sea They drive and squander the huge Belgian fleet; Berkeley alone, who nearest danger lay, Did a like fate with lost Creusa meet.
Seite 60 - I then went towards Islington and Highgate, where one might have seen 200,000 people of all ranks and degrees dispersed and lying along by their heaps of what they could save from the fire, deploring their loss, and though ready to perish for hunger and destitution, yet not asking one penny for relief, which to me appeared a stranger sight than any I had yet beheld.
Seite 23 - Some drive old oakum through each seam and rift: Their left-hand does the calking-iron guide, The rattling mallet with the right they lift. With boiling pitch another near at hand (From friendly Sweden brought) the seams instops; Which, well paid o'er, the salt-sea waves withstand, And shake them from the rising beak in drops.
Seite 33 - The diligence of trades and noiseful gain, And luxury more late, asleep were laid : All was the Night's ; and in her silent reign No sound the rest of Nature did invade.
Seite 26 - I foretel, from your auspicious care, Who great in search of God and Nature grow ; Who best your wise Creator's praise declare, Since best to praise his works is best to know.
