Strona 172 - Of fish that with their fins, and shining scales Glide under the green wave, in sculls that oft Bank the mid sea : part single, or with mate, Graze the sea-weed their pasture, and through groves Of coral stray ; or, sporting with quick glance, Show to the sun their wav'd coats dropt with gold...
Strona 127 - That age or injury has hollow'd deep, Where, on his bed of wool and matted leaves, He has outslept the winter, ventures forth To frisk awhile, and bask in the warm sun, The squirrel, — flippant, pert and full of play : He sees me, and, at once, swift as a bird, Ascends the neighbouring beech ; there whisks his brush, And perks his ears, and stamps, and cries aloud, With all the prettiness of feigned alarm, And anger insignificantly fierce.
Strona 31 - An' set your beauties a' abread ! Ye little ken what cursed speed The blastie's makin ! Thae winks and finger-ends, I dread, Are notice takin ! O wad some pow'r the giftie gie us To see oursels as others see us ! It wad frae monie a blunder free us And foolish notion : What airs in dress an' gait wad lea'e us, And ev'n Devotion ! ADDRESS TO EDINBURGH.
Strona 127 - Drawn from his refuge in some lonely elm, That age or injury has hollow'd deep, Where, on his bed of wool and matted leaves, He has outslept the winter, ventures forth To frisk awhile, and bask in the warm sun, The squirrel, flippant, pert, and full of play : He sees me, and at once, swift as a bird, Ascends the neighbouring beech ; there whisks his brush, And perks his ears, and stamps, and cries aloud, With all the prettiness of feign'd alarm. And anger insignificantly fierce.
Strona 189 - Religion! what treasure untold Resides in that heavenly word! More precious than silver and gold, Or all that this earth can afford. But the sound of the church-going bell These valleys and rocks never heard, Never sighed at the sound of a knell, Or smiled when a sabbath appeared.
Strona 242 - The ships, unmov'd, the boist'rous winds defy, While rattling chariots o'er the ocean fly. The vast Leviathan wants room to play, And spout his waters in the face of day. The starving wolves along the main sea prowl, And to the moon in icy valleys howl.
Strona 241 - ... should see and avoid them, by guiding the horses accordingly; or otherwise his plough might be spoiled by the shock. The answer was satisfactory and convincing; and I must here take notice that many other of their methods are too well suited to their own circumstances and those of the country, to be easily amended by such as undertake to deride them.
Strona 99 - Oh! is it not a pleasant thing to wander through the woods, To look upon the painted flowers, and watch the opening buds; Or seated in the deep cool shade, at some tall ash-tree's root, To fill my little basket with the sweet and scented fruit...
Strona 175 - ... the form of an S. The river falls perpendicularly, without a single contact with the rock, nine hundred feet, into a valley scarcely broader than itself. ' The effect is very grand. The body of water is, perhaps, equal to that of the Nandek, in Switzerland. Before reaching the edge of the precipice, it has acquired such velocity from its course down a gently sloping plane, that it is projected several feet in advance, and forms a succession of folds, like flakes of snow, of an enormous size and...
Strona 226 - At that instant a pitiful -looking little fellow rushed out of the house with a great deal of clamorous swaggering to beat the Lowlander, who, he said, had struck him. "Begone, beggar!" said the tall young man, pushing him back ; " he struck me too, and I think / could beat him as well as you. He has behaved ill, and I turned him out ; he made a bad use of his staff, and I broke it ; but no man shall beat him here, and he that lifts his hand to him had as well lift it to me ; HE rs A STRANGER, AND...
