Stranica 52 - The muffled drum's sad roll has beat The soldier's last tattoo; No more on life's parade shall meet That brave and fallen few. On fame's eternal camping ground Their silent tents are spread, And glory guards, with solemn round, The bivouac of the dead.
Stranica 264 - There's night and day, brother, both sweet things ; sun, moon, and stars, brother, all sweet things ; there's likewise a wind on the heath.

Stranica 306 - Let men do these things if they will. Perhaps there is no harm in it ; perhaps it makes them no crueller than they would be otherwise.
