Strona 369 - A deathwhite mist slept over sand and sea : Whereof the chill, to him who breathed it, drew Down with his blood, till all his heart was cold With formless fear; and ev'n on Arthur fell Confusion, since he saw not whom he fought. For friend and foe were shadows in the mist, And friend slew friend not knowing whom he slew...
Strona 424 - If I was surprised to find him there, I was still more astonished when he acquainted me with the motives which had induced him to hazard a journey to England at this juncture. The impatience of his friends who were in exile, had formed a scheme which was impracticable; but although it had been as feasible as they had represented it to him, yet no preparation had been made, nor was any thing ready to carry it into execution.
Strona 198 - ... from harms. He can requite thee; for he knows the charms That call fame on such gentle acts as these, And he can spread thy name o'er lands and seas, Whatever clime the sun's bright circle warms. Lift not thy spear against the Muses...
Strona 150 - With-holds his homage, not alone I wake ; Bright legions swarm unseen, and sing, unheard By mortal ear, the glorious Architect, In This His universal temple hung With lustres, with innumerable lights, That shed religion on the soul ; at once, The Temple, and the Preacher ! O how loud It calls devotion ! genuine growth of Night ! Devotion ! daughter of astronomy ! An undevout astronomer is mad.
Strona 234 - At this the challenger, with fierce defy, \ His trumpet sounds ; the challenged makes reply : ' With clangour rings the field, resounds the vaulted sky. ) Their vizors closed, their lances in the rest, Or at the helmet pointed or the crest, They vanish from the barrier, speed the race, And spurring see decrease the middle space.

I desire the hand nor weapon of no man to defend me. I only crave audience ; which, if it be denied here unto me at this time, I must seek where I may have it.
Strona 369 - On the waste sand by the waste sea they closed. Nor ever yet had Arthur fought a fight Like this last, dim, weird battle of the west. A deathwhite mist slept over sand and sea: Whereof the chill, to him who breathed it, drew Down with his blood, till all his heart was cold With formless fear ; and ev'n on Arthur fell Confusion, since he saw not whom he fought.
Strona 477 - Haste me to know it, that I, with wings as swift As meditation, or the thoughts of love, May sweep to my revenge.
Strona 22 - Mightiest of all the beasts of chase, That roam in woody Caledon, Crashing the forest in his race, The mountain bull comes thundering on. Fierce, on the hunter's quiver'd band, He rolls his eyes of swarthy glow, Spurns, with black hoof and horn, the sand. And tosses high his mane of snow.
