Strona 25 - THE moisten'd lowlands, delicately clear, Through the thin haze and morning gleam appear ; On the smooth herbage cattle graze or sleep, The neatherds by the rushy streamlet keep Their quiet watch, until the day expire, And slanting sunbeams gild the village spire.
Strona 4 - In half an hour's sitting — in hot weather — The painting on their face has been so mellow, They have left the poor man harder work by half To mend the copy he wrought by : But indeed, If ever I would have mine drawn to the life, ' I would have a painter steal it at such a time I were devoutly kneeling at my prayers ; There is then a heavenly beauty in't, the soul Moves in the superficies.
