Strona 45 - The balmy spirit of the western gale Eternal breathes on fruits untaught to fail ; Each dropping pear a following pear supplies, On apples apples, figs on figs arise ; The same mild season gives the blooms to blow, The buds to harden and the fruits to grow. Here order'd vines in equal ranks appear, With all th...
Strona 12 - The odious stranger, disguising every circumstance of time and place, assumed the mask of a martyr, a saint, and a Christian hero; and the infamous George of Cappadocia has been transformed into the renowned St. George of England, the patron of arms, of chivalry, and of the garter.
Strona 108 - A just and severe censure has been inflicted on the law which prohibited the Christians from teaching the arts of grammar and rhetoric." The motives alleged by the emperor, to justify this partial and oppressive measure, might command, during his lifetime, the silence of slaves and the applause of flatterers. Julian abuses the ambiguous meaning of a word which might be indifferently applied to the language and the religion of the GREEKS: he contemptuously observes that the...
Strona 220 - Simois, rolling to the Main Helmets, and Shields, and God-like Heroes slain: These, turn'd by Phoebus from their wonted ways, Delug'd the Rampire nine continual Days; The Weight of Waters saps the yielding Wall, And to the Sea the floating Bulwarks fall. Incessant Cataracts the Thund'rer pours, And half the Skies descend in sluicy Show'rs.
Strona 238 - A magnificent temple rose in honour of the god of light ; and his colossal figure almost filled the capacious sanctuary, which was enriched with gold and gems, and adorned by the skill of the Grecian artists. The deity was represented in a bending attitude, with a golden cup in his hand, pouring out a libation on the earth ; as if he supplicated the venerable mother to give to his arms the cold and beauteous Daphne...
Strona 102 - Its wings are beautiful, being streaked with silver, and marked with brown spots ; the outer wings are twice as long as the inner, and more variegated.
Strona 140 - Whether the people of Cimmerium. and their city, as defcribed by the poet There in a lonely land and gloomy cells The duflcy nation of Cimmeria dwells. The fun ne'er views th' uncomfortable feats, When radiant he advances, or retreats.
Strona 28 - Immur'd within the silent bow'r of sleep, Two portals firm the various phantoms keep : Of iv'ry one : whence flit to mock the brain, Of winged lies a light fantastic train : The gate oppos'd pellucid valves adorn, 660 And columns fair incas'd with polish'd horn : "Where images of truth for passage wait, With visions manifest of future fate. Not to this troop, I fear, that phantom...
Strona 42 - Thou art about, oh! king, to make war against men who wear leathern trousers, and have all their other garments of leather; who feed not on what they like, but on what they can get from a soil that is sterile and unkindly; who do not indulge in wine, but drink water; who possess no figs nor anything else that is good to eat.
Strona 113 - A wise physician skill'd our wounds to heal, Is more than armies to the public weal.
