Стр. 165 - THE curfew tolls the knell of parting day, The lowing herd wind slowly o'er the lea, The plowman homeward plods his weary way, And leaves the world to darkness and to me. Now fades the glimmering landscape on the sight, And all the air a solemn stillness holds, Save where the beetle wheels his droning flight, And drowsy tinklings lull the distant folds...
Стр. 166 - He spoke, and awful bends his sable brows ; Shakes his ambrosial curls, and gives the nod ; The stamp of fate, and sanction of the god : 685 High heaven with trembling the dread signal took, And all Olympus to the centre shook.
