The neighbours stared and sigh'd, yet bless'd the lad ; Some deem'd him wondrous wise, and some believed him mad.
Seite 35 - He hadna been awa' a week but only twa, When my father brak his arm, and the cow was stown awa; My mother she fell sick, and my Jamie at the sea — And auld Robin Gray came a'courtin' me. My father couldna work, and my mother couldna spin; I toil'd day and night, but their bread I couldna win: Auld Rob maintain'd them baith, and wi' tears in his e'e Said, Jennie, for their sakes, O, marry me!
Seite 51 - I had even thought to live with you, but for the injuries of one man. Colonel Cresap...
Seite 208 - Chatterton, to his knowledge, never slept while they lay together; that he never came to bed till very late, sometimes three or four o'clock, and was always awake when he (the nephew) waked, and got up at the same time, about five or six ; that almost every morning the floor was covered with pieces of paper not so big as sixpences, into which he had torn what he had been writing before he came to bed.
Seite 237 - tis a consummation Devoutly to be wish'd. To die: to sleep; To sleep: perchance to dream: ay, there's the rub; For in that sleep of death what dreams may come When we have shuffled off this mortal coil...
Seite 130 - Ye officers lead on.» Then Florence raved as any mad, And did her tresses tear; « Oh stay, my husband, lord, and life ! » Sir Charles then dropp'da tear.
