Page 30 - All things are full of labour; man cannot utter it: the eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing.
Page 342 - Over hills and through dales Have I roamed for your sake; All yesterday I sailed with sails On river and on lake. The Erne ... at its highest flood I dashed across unseen, For there was lightning in my blood, My Dark Rosaleen!

Page 397 - Sore disgrace it is to see the Arbitress of thrones, Vassal to a Saxoneen of cold and sapless bones! Bitter anguish wrings our souls — with heavy sighs and groans We wait the Young Deliverer of Kathaleen Ny-Houlahan!
