Strona 19 - And starts, half-conscious, at the falling tear. Rarely from town, nor then unwatch'd, he goes, In darker mood, as if to hide his woes; Returning soon, he with impatience seeks His youthful friends, and shouts, and sings, and speaks; Speaks a wild speech with action all as wild— The children's leader, and himself a child; He spins their top, or, at their bidding, bends His back, while o'er it leap his laughing friends; Simple and weak, he acts the boy once more, And heedless children call him Silly...
Strona 145 - He that doth evil, evil shall he dread." "The snow," quoth Susan, "falls upon his bed — It blows beside the thatch — it melts upon his head." " Tis weakness, child, for grieving guilt to feel.
Strona 99 - ... oppress'd him, who, when free from wine, Could seldom clearly utter his design ; But though by nature and indulgence weak, Yet, half converted, he resolved to speak ; And, speaking, own'd, " that in his mind the Youth " Had gifts and learning, and that truth was truth:
Strona 1 - GENIUS! thou gift of Heav'n ! thou light divine ! Amid what dangers art thou dooin'd to shine ! Oft will the body's weakness check thy force, Oft damp thy vigour, and impede thy course; And trembling nerves compel thee to restrain Thy nobler efforts, to contend with pain...
Strona xix - ... vexations, and to give it repose by substituting objects in their place which it may contemplate with some degree of interest and satisfaction: but what is there in all this, which may not be effected by a fair representation of existing character? nay...
Strona 146 - Peace ! Susan, peace ! Pain ever follows sin.' — ' Ah ! then,' thought Susan, ' when will ours begin ? ' When reach'd his home, to what a cheerless fire And chilling bed will those cold limbs retire ! Yet ragged, wretched as it is, that bed Takes half the space of his contracted shed ; I saw the thorns beside the narrow grate, With straw collected in a putrid state : There will he, kneeling, strive the fire to raise, And that will warm him, rather than the blaze; The sullen, smoky blaze, that cannot...
Strona xi - ... the former, that the latter is contemptuously denied them; now of these, reproof, though it may cause more temporary uneasiness, will in many cases create less difficulty, since errors may be corrected when opportunity occurs ; but advice, I repeat, may be of such a nature, that it will be painful to reject, and yet impossible to follow it; and in this predicament I conceive myself to be placed.
Strona 145 - In pity do behold The man affrighten*d, weeping, trembling, cold : Oh ! how those flakes of snow their entrance win Through the poor rags, and keep the frost within. His very heart seems frozen as he goes, Leading that starved companion of his woes : He tried to pray — his lips, I saw them move, And he so turn'd his piteous looks above ; But the fierce wind the willing heart opposed, And, ere he spoke, the lips in misery...
Strona 82 - I'll give —oh! let me fly — How ! but a dream — no judges ! dungeon ! chain ! Or these grim men ! — I will not sleep again. — Wilt thou, dread being ! thus thy promise keep? Day is thy time — and wilt thou murder sleep? Sorrow and want repose, and wilt thou come, Nor give one hour of pure untroubled gloom ? ' Oh ! Conscience ! Conscience ! man's most faithful friend. Him canst thou comfort, ease, relieve, defend; But if he will thy friendly checks forego, Thou art, oh ! woe for me, his...
Strona 14 - And from associates pleas'd to find a friend, With powers to lead them, gladden, and defend, In all those scenes where transient ease is found, For minds whom sins oppress, and sorrows wound. Wine is like anger ; for it makes us strong, Blind and impatient, and it leads us wrong ; The strength is quickly lost, we feel the error long...
