Strona 72 - Now the bright morning star, day's harbinger, Comes dancing from the east, and leads with her The flowery May, who from her green lap throws The yellow cowslip, and the pale primrose. Hail, bounteous May, that dost inspire Mirth, and youth, and warm desire ; Woods and groves are of thy dressing, Hill and dale doth boast thy blessing. Thus we salute thee with our early song...
Strona 195 - Stern o'er each bosom reason holds her state, With daring aims irregularly great. Pride in their port, defiance in their eye, I see the lords of human kind pass by...
Strona 122 - Alas! what boots it with uncessant care To tend the homely, slighted, shepherd's trade And strictly meditate the thankless Muse ? Were it not better done, as others use, To sport with Amaryllis in the shade, Or with the tangles of Neaera's hair?

Strona 117 - When stars are in the quiet skies, Then most I pine for thee ; Bend on me then thy tender eyes, As stars look on the sea.
Strona 71 - Maltravers," said Ferrers, carelessly turning over the volumes on the table. " All very right : we should begin life with books ; they multiply the sources of employment ; so does capital ; — but capital is of no use, unless we live on the interest, — books are waste paper, unless we spend in action the wisdom we get from thought.
Strona 180 - And merely, as he thought, to make the best Of what by force would come about his breast, Began to bend down his admiring eyes On all her touching looks and qualities, Turning their shapely sweetness every way, Till 'twas his food and habit day by day...
