Page 159 - And it came to pass on the third day in the morning, that there were thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud upon the mount, and the voice of the trumpet exceeding loud; so that all the people that was in the camp trembled.
Page 159 - And Moses brought forth the people out of the camp to meet God; and they stood at the nether part of the mount. And mount Sinai was altogether on smoke, because the LORD descended upon it in fire: and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly. And when the voice of the trumpet waxed louder and louder, Moses spake, and God answered him by a voice.
Page 431 - WITCH. Fillet of a fenny snake, In the caldron boil and bake; Eye of newt, and toe of frog, Wool of bat, and tongue of dog, Adder's fork, and blind-worm's sting, Lizard's leg, and howlet's wing, — For a charm of powerful trouble, Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.
Page 387 - Oh ! why should the spirit of mortal be proud ? Like a swift-fleeting meteor, a fast-flying cloud, A flash of the lightning, a break of the wave, He passeth from life to his rest in the grave. The leaves of the oak and the willow shall fade, Be scattered around, and together be laid...
Page 41 - O, not more dear To tender thought and lover's dream, To muse's song and poet's theme, The dreamy vale of sweet Cachmere...
Page 480 - In nil its olden passion, Crept down the shining ways ! " The restless hands moved slower, As fraught with memories ; The bended head bowed lower Before the ivory keys. "What though the low winds listened, Or dimmed the dusky eyes ; Perchance but dewdrops...

Over the mountain or meadow, Over the desert or glade, Into the glimmer or shadow, Into the sunshine or shade. " Chasing life's bright, gleaming bubble, Some in the East and the West, Why should we sigh with a trouble, Where our cold ashes may rest ? Lulled by the soft-cooing turtle, Watched by the sentries of God — Under...
Page 408 - Helpless to shrink and cower, Waiting like Summer flower But to be wilted. Breakers to right of them, Breakers to left of them, Breakers in front of them Volleyed and thundered; Would they dare brave the swells, In their wild, frenzied spells, Bald heads and blushing belles?
Page 388 - ... delight in a blissful surprise — All ages, all colors, tan, freckle and brown, Lank Pikes from the country, fast hoodlums from town ; The hay-scented granger, the clerk from the store With hair...
Page 407 - Half a mile, half a mile, Half a mile downward, Trudging through sand and sun, Went the One Hundred; Downcast and slightly nude, Stared at with glances rude, What though the multitude Giggled and wondered. Down on the wave-washed strand Forms the devoted band, Fastly linked, hand in hand, Fashion and Folly; Stared at by "rake" and "swell," Rustic and city belle, O, but they stood it well; Wasn't it jolly?
