Seite 126 - Scholars only — this immense And glorious Work of fine intelligence ! Give all thou canst ; high Heaven rejects the lore Of nicely-calculated less or more ; So deemed the man who fashioned for the sense These lofty pillars, spread that branching roof Self-poised, and scooped into ten thousand cells, Where light and shade repose, where music dwells Lingering — and wandering on as loth to die ; Like thoughts whose very sweetness yieldeth proof That they were born for immortality.
Seite 94 - See, at his feet, some little plan or chart, Some fragment from his dream of human life, Shaped by himself with newly -learned art; A wedding or a festival, A mourning or a funeral; And this hath now his heart...
Seite 106 - So each shall mourn, in life's advance, Dear hopes, dear friends, untimely killed; Shall grieve for many a forfeit chance, And longing passion unfulfilled. Amen ! whatever fate be sent, Pray God the heart may kindly glow, Although the head with cares be bent, And whitened with the winter snow. Come wealth or want, come good or ill, Let young and old accept their part, And bow before the Awful Will, And bear it with an honest heart, Who misses or who wins the prize.
Seite 78 - CI vous n'avez rien à me dire, Pourquoi venir auprès de moi ? Pourquoi me faire ce sourire Qui tournerait la tête au roi ? Si vous n'avez rien à me dire, Pourquoi venir auprès de moi ? Si vous n'avez rien à m'apprendre, Pourquoi me pressez- vous la main? Sur le rêve angélique et tendre, Auquel vous songez en chemin, Si vous n'avez rien à m'apprendre, Pourquoi me pressez-vous la main...
Seite 139 - Here, work enough to watch The Master work, and catch Hints of the proper craft, tricks of the tool's true play.
Seite 236 - ... faithful sympathies enduring to the end. All this, not in the words and descriptions of the events which really happened, but in a language of which he or she alone holds the key, or of which, perhaps, the full significance is scarcely known even to the writer. Only in the great unknown world which he addresses there surely is the kindred spirit somewhere, the kind heart, the friend of friends who will understand him. Novelwriting must be like tears to some women, the vent and the relief of many...
Seite 25 - The little daisy that at evening closes, The virgin lily and the primrose true, With store of vermeil roses, To deck their bridegrooms' posies Against the bridal day, which was not long : Sweet Thames ! run softly, till I end my song. With that I saw two swans of goodly hue Come softly swimming down along the...
Seite 7 - As she is famed to do, deceiving elf. Adieu! adieu! thy plaintive anthem fades Past the near meadows, over the still stream, Up the hillside; and now 'tis buried deep In the next valley-glades : Was it a vision, or a waking dream ? Fled is that music : — Do I wake or sleep ? ODE ON A GRECIAN URN THOU still unravished bride of quietness!
Seite 20 - Queen Margaret and her son were taken prisoners, and brought to the king, who asked the prince, after an insulting manner, how he dared to invade his dominions? The young prince, more mindful of his high birth than of his present fortune, replied, that he came thither to claim his just inheritance. [21st May.] The ungenerous Edward, insensible to pity, struck him on the face with his gauntlet...
Seite 226 - Not too much,' by temperance taught In what thou eat'st and drink'st, seeking from thence Due nourishment, not gluttonous delight, Till many years over thy head return: So may'st thou live, till like ripe Fruit thou drop Into thy Mother's lap, or be with ease Gathered, not harshly plucked, for death mature...
