Page 617 - The current that with gentle murmur glides, Thou know'st, being stopp'd, impatiently doth rage ; But when his fair course is not hindered, He makes sweet music with the enamell'd stones, Giving a gentle kiss to every sedge He overtaketh in his pilgrimage, And so by many winding nooks he strays, With willing sport, to the wild ocean.

Page 525 - To-day deep thoughts resolve with me to drench In mirth that after no repenting draws ; Let Euclid rest, and Archimedes pause, And what the Swede intend, and what the French.
