Seite 269 - Ever charming, ever new, When will the landscape tire the view; The fountain's fall, the river's flow, The woody valleys, warm and low ; The windy summit, wild and high, Roughly rushing on the sky!
Seite 266 - Silent Nymph, with curious eye ! Who, the purple evening, lie On the mountain's lonely van, Beyond the noise of busy man, Painting fair the form of things, While the yellow linnet sings ; Or the tuneful nightingale Charms the forest with her tale ; Come with all thy various hues, Come, and aid thy sister Muse ; Now while Phoebus riding high Gives lustre to the land and sky ! Grongar Hill...
Seite 267 - The gloomy pine, the poplar blue, The yellow beech, the sable yew, The slender fir that taper grows, The sturdy oak with broad-spread boughs...
Seite 269 - Ever charming, ever new, When will the Landskip tire the View ! The Fountain's Fall, the River's Flow, The woody Vallies, warm and low : The windy Summit, wild and high, Roughly rushing on the Sky ! The pleasant Seat, the ruin'd Tow'r, The naked Rock, the shady Bow'r : The Town and Village, Dome and Farm, Each give each a double Charm, As Pearls upon an Mthiop's Arm.

Seite 146 - Thou had'st not been provoked — or thou had'st died. Far be the guilt of home-shed blood, from all On whom, unsought, embroiling dangers fall ! Still the pale dead revives, and lives to me, To me ! through Pity's eye condemn'd to see. Remembrance veils his rage, but swells his fate ; Grieved I forgive, and am grown cool too late ; Young and unthoughtful then, who knows one day...
Seite 5 - Macclesfield, having lived some time upon very uneasy terms with her husband, thought a public confession of adultery the most obvious and expeditious method of obtaining her liberty ; and therefore declared, that the child, with which she was then great, was begotten by the earl Rivers.
Seite 269 - Ey'd through hope's deluding glass ; As yon summits soft and fair, Clad in colours of the air, Which, to those who journey near, Barren, brown, and rough appear ; Still we tread the same coarse way, The present's still a cloudy day.
