Strona 111 - Dear as the ruddy drops that warm my heart, Ye died amidst your dying country's cries — No more I weep : they do not sleep ! On yonder cliffs, a grisly band, I see them sit; they linger yet Avengers of their native land: With me in dreadful harmony they join, And weave with bloody hands the tissue of thy line.
Strona 208 - Crabbed age and youth cannot live together Youth is full of pleasance, age is full of care; Youth like summer morn, age like winter weather; Youth like summer brave, age like winter bare; Youth is full of sport, age's breath is short; Youth is nimble, age is lame; Youth is hot and bold, age is weak and cold; Youth is wild, and age is tame. Age, I do abhor thee; youth, I do adore thee; O...
Strona 111 - Though, fanned by Conquest's crimson wing, They mock the air with idle state. Helm, nor hauberk's twisted mail, Nor e'en thy virtues, Tyrant, shall avail To save thy secret soul from nightly fears, From Cambria's curse, from Cambria's tears...

Strona 112 - EVENING If aught of oaten stop, or pastoral song, May hope, chaste Eve, to soothe thy modest ear, Like thy own solemn springs, Thy springs and dying gales...
Strona 312 - Honour rewards the brave and bold alone ; She spurns the timorous, indolent, and base: Danger and toil stand stern before her throne, And guard, so Jove commands, the sacred place. Who seeks her must the mighty cost sustain, And pay the price of fame — labour, and care, and pain.
Strona 9 - How comes there to be a stone in your shoe ?" " Because of this great hole, mamma — it comes in there ; my shoes are quite worn out. I wish you would be so very good as to give me another pair.
Strona 12 - Will you lend me a bowl to pour it into, mamma ?" " That was more than I promised you, my dear ; but I will lend you a bowl.™ The bowl was produced, and Rosamond proceeded to empty the purple vase.
