Strona 181 - Lo, the poor Indian ! whose untutor'd mind Sees God in clouds, or hears him in the wind ; His soul proud science never taught to stray Far as the Solar Walk or Milky Way, Yet simple nature to his hope has given, Behind the cloud-topt hill, a humbler Heaven; Some safer world in depth of wood
Strona 295 - 1. Give thy thoughts no tongue, Nor any unproportioned thought his act. Be thou familiar, but by no means vulgar: The friends thou hast, and their adoption tried, Grapple them to thy soul with hooks of steel; But do not dull thy palm with entertainment Of each new-hatched, unfledged comrade.—Beware Of entrance to a quarrel; but being
Strona 141 - And the .fiery heart of youth. 5. What sought they thus afar ? Bright jewels of the mine ? The wealth of seas ? the spoils of war ?— They sought a faith's pure shrine.

There is ; just God, who presides over the destinies of nations,
Strona 290 - by the French.] 1. Not a drum was heard, nor a funeral note, As his corse to the ramparts we hurried; Not a soldier discharged his farewell shot O'er the grave, where our hero we buried. 2. We buried him darkly, at dead of night, The
Strona 291 - random gun, That the foe was suddenly firing. 8. Slowly and sadly we laid him down, From the field of his fame, fresh and gory! We carved not a line, we raised not a stone, But left him alone with his glory!
Strona 32 - tis the mind that makes the body rich :And as the sun breaks through the darkest clouds, So honor peereth in the meanest habit. What! is the jay more precious than the lark. Because his feathers are more beautiful 1 Or. is the adder better than the eel, Because his painted skin contents the eye
