Strana 200 - A pleasing land of drowsy-head it was, Of dreams that wave before the half-shut eye ; And of gay castles in the clouds that pass, For ever flushing round a summer sky...
Strana 192 - As loath to leave the helpless maid, When, fast as shaft can fly, Bloodshot his eyes, his nostrils spread, The loose rein dangling from his head. Housing and saddle bloody red, Lord Marmion's steed rushed by...
Strana 196 - Of the first year ! a beauty ripe as harvest ! Whose skin is whiter than a swan all over, Than silver, snow, or lilies! a soft lip, Would tempt you to eternity of kissing! And flesh that melteth in the touch to blood ! Bright as your gold, and lovely as your gold ! Volp.
Strana 144 - Beside yon straggling fence that skirts the way, With blossom'd furze unprofitably gay, There, in his noisy mansion, skill'd to rule, The village master taught his little school. A man severe he was, and stern to view; I knew him well, and every truant knew...
Strana 83 - Taint in poetry, is it ?" interposed his father. " No, no/' replied Sam. " Wery glad to hear it," said Mr. Weller. " Poetry's unnat'ral ; no man ever talked poetry 'cept a beadle on boxin...

Strana 115 - The floor of Heaven was thick inlaid With patines of bright gold ;"* A firmament beneath was made — A mimic Heaven unroll'd.
Strana 22 - Entertaining his friends with kindness, he was neither a prodigal nor a thrifty host. His first wife was Judith, daughter of John Armistead, Esq. ; his second, Betty, a descendant of the noble family of the Landons, by whom he had many children, on whose education he expended a considerable portion of his property.
Strana 40 - The tomb was railed round with green railing, and a sentinel walked round it night and day, to prevent approach within the railing. There was no inscription upon the tomb. The ground surrounding it, it was understood, was to be laid out as gardens, for the accommodation of those who came to visit the grave of the departed Emperor. The cemetery of Napoleon is a singular instance of adaptation to the character of the individual...
Strana 7 - This appeal was too cogent to be resisted ? Up jumped one of the justices, and protested that " it was not to be borne ; let the prisoner go : away with your British authorities !" The counsel for the accused rubbed his hands and winked at the attorney ; the attorney stood aghast ; his astonishment was too great for utterance, and the negress was halfway home, before he recovered from his amazement.
