Strona 2122 - His spear, to equal which the tallest pine Hewn on Norwegian hills to be the mast Of some great ammiral, were but a wand.
Strona 2084 - Vale, Which to this day stands single, in the midst Of its own darkness, as it stood of yore ; Not loth to furnish weapons for the bands Of Umfraville or Percy ere they marched To Scotland's heaths ; or those that crossed the sea And drew their sounding bows at Azincour, Perhaps at earlier Crecy, or Poictiers. Of vast circumference, and gloom profound This solitary Tree ! a living thing 10 Produced too slowly ever to decay ; Of form and aspect too magnificent To be destroyed.
Strona 2084 - He gathers all the parish there ; Points out the place of either yew, Here Baucis, there Philemon, grew : Till once a parson of our town, ' To mend his barn, cut Baucis down ; At which, 'tis hard to be...
Strona 2418 - Behold the Assyrian was a Cedar in Lebanon, with fair branches, and with a shadowing shroud, and of an high stature ; and his top was among the thick boughs. His boughs were multiplied, and his branches became long.

Strona 2171 - Millions of Spirits for his fault amerced* Of Heaven, and from eternal splendours flung For his revolt; yet faithful how they stood, Their glory withered: as when Heaven's fire Hath scathed the forest oaks, or mountain pines, With singed top their stately growth though bare Stands on the blasted heath.
Strona 2138 - When these tremendous fires are once in motion, or at least when the flames extend over a few miles of the forest, the surrounding air becomes highly rarefied, and the wind naturally increases to a hurricane.
Strona 2174 - Bothnia everywhere appeared of the grandest character, surrounded by noble forests, whose tall trees, flourishing luxuriantly, covered the soil quite down to the water's edge. From the most southern parts of Westro-Bothnia to the northern extremity of the gulf the inhabitants are occupied in the manufacture of tar, proofs of which are visible along the whole extent of the coast.
Strona 2230 - ... a longer stem. But as it attains maturity, its picturesque form increases fast. Its lengthening stem assumes commonly an easy sweep. It seldom indeed deviates much from a straight line, but that gentle deviation is very graceful, and above all other lines difficult to imitate. If accidentally either the stem or any of the larger branches take a larger sweep than usual, that sweep seldom fails to be graceful. It is also among the beauties of the stone pine, that, as the lateral branches decay,...
Strona 2174 - During this combustion, the tar exudes ; and a cast-iron pan being at the bottom of the funnel, with a spout, which projects through the side of the bank, barrels are placed beneath this spout, to collect the fluid as it comes away.
