Strona 260 - And every one that heareth these sayings of mine and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand : and the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
Strona 447 - Whose midnight revels, by a forest side Or fountain, some belated peasant sees, Or dreams he sees, while over head the moon Sits arbitress, and nearer to the earth Wheels her pale course ; they, on their mirth and dance Intent, with jocund music charm his ear ; At once with joy and fear his heart rebounds.
Strona 406 - Within a long recess there lies a bay : An island shades it from the rolling sea, And forms a port secure for ships to ride : Broke by the jutting land on either side, In double streams the briny waters glide...
Strona 503 - I have neither the scholar's melancholy, which is emulation ; nor the musician's, which is fantastical ; nor the courtier's, which is proud ; nor the soldier's, which is ambitious ; nor the lawyer's, which is politic ; nor the lady's, which is nice ; nor the lover's, which is all these : but it is a melancholy of mine own, compounded of many simples, extracted from many objects ; and indeed the sundry contemplation of my travels, in which my often rumination wraps me in a most humorous sadness.

Strona 258 - And wither'd heaths I rove; Where tree, nor spire, nor cot appears, I pass to meet my love. But though my path were damask'd o'er With beauties e'er so fine, My busy thoughts would fly before To fix alone — on thine.
Strona 75 - He took her naked, all alone, Before one rag of form was on. The Chaos, too, he had descry'd, And seen quite through, or else he ly'd : Not that of Pasteboard, which men shew 565 For groats at fair of Barthol'mew ; But its great grandsire, first o...
Strona 204 - For the vineyard of the Lord of hosts is the house of Israel, and the men of Judah his pleasant plant; and he looked for judgment, but behold oppression; for righteousness, but behold a cry.
Strona 453 - His yron cote, all overgrowne with rust, Was underneath enveloped with gold, Whose glistring glosse, darkned with filthy dust, Well yet appeared to have beene of old A worke of...
