Strona 171 - The glory of his noftrils is terrible. He paweth in the valley, and rejoiceth in his ftrength. He goeth on to meet the armed men. He mo'cketh at fear, and is not affrighted ; neither turneth he back from the fword. The quiver rattleth againft him ; the glittering fpear and the fhield. He fwalloweth the ground with fiercenefs and rage ; neither believeth he that it is the found of the trumpet.

Strona 172 - The fiery courser, when he hears from far The sprightly trumpets, and the shouts of war, Pricks up his ears, and trembling with delight, Shifts pace, and paws; and hopes the promis'd fight.

Strona 79 - Grace was in all her fteps, Heav'n in her eye. In every gefture dignity and love.
Strona 171 - And muffs the females in forbidden grounds. Or feeks his watering in the well-known flood, To quench his thirft, and cool his fiery blood : • He fwims luxuriant in the liquid plain, And o'er his fhoulder flows his waving mane: He He neighs , he fnorts, he bears his head on high; Before his ample cheft the frothy waters fly.
