Strona 109 - How sweet the moonlight sleeps upon this bank ! Here will we sit and let the sounds of music Creep in our ears; soft stillness and the night Become the touches of sweet harmony.
Strona 117 - When coarser souls are wrapt in sleep, — Sweet spirit, meet me then. There is an hour when holy dreams, Through slumber, fairest glide ; And in that mystic hour it seems Thou shouldst be by my...
Strona 122 - Alas! what boots it with uncessant care To tend the homely, slighted, shepherd's trade And strictly meditate the thankless Muse ? Were it not better done, as others use, To sport with Amaryllis in the shade, Or with the tangles of Neaera's hair?
Strona 86 - gan the Palmer thus — ' Most wretched man That to affections dost the bridle lend: In their beginning they are weak and wan, But soon, through suffrance, growe to fearfull end ; While they are weak, betimes with them contend.

Strona 122 - People talk about thinking — but for my part I never think, except when I sit down to write. " I believe this is not a very common case, for people who don't write think as well as people who do, but connected , severe , well-developed thought , in contradistinction to vague meditation , must be connected with some tangible plan or object; and therefore we must be either...
Strona 195 - The public buildings are few, and for the most part, mean ; the monuments of antiquity, not comparable to those which the pettiest town in Italy can boast of; the palaces are sad rubbish; the houses of our peers and princes are shabby and shapeless heaps of brick.

How majestic, and yet how vivid, is the life that runs through her myriad veins...
