I can do nothing," and he saw him thrown Into the deep, without a tear or groan.

And lives he still, then ? Yes ! Old and hoary At thirty-nine, from despair and woe, He lives enduring what future story Will never know. Him grant a grave to, ye pitying noble, Deep in your bosoms !

Seite 180 - Twenty years ago, alas! — but stay — On my life, 'tis half-past twelve o'clock! After all, the hours do slip away — Come, here goes to burn another block! For the night, or morn, is wet and cold; And my fire is dwindling rather low: — I had fire enough, when young and bold Twenty golden years ago.

The Greeks were my demi-gods, and haunted me out of Pope's Homer until I dreamt more of Agamemnon than of Moses the black pony. And thus my great ' epic ' of eleven or twelve years old, in four books, and called
Seite 178 - s twice five hundred men Whose binishes flamed with gold ; I call up many a gorgeous show Which the Pall of Oblivion hides — All passed like snow, long, long ago, With the time of the Barmecides ; All passed like snow, long, long ago, With the time of the Barmecides.
