Стр. 137 - So the loud torrent, and the whirlwind's roar, But bind him to his native mountains more. Such are the charms to barren states assign'd ; Their wants but few, their wishes all confin'd. Yet let them only share the praises due, If few their wants, their pleasures are but few; For every want that stimulates the breast,
Стр. 145 - In every government, though terrors reign, Though tyrant kings, or tyrant laws restrain, How small of all that human hearts endure, That part which laws or kings can cause or cure. Still to ourselves in every place consign'd, Our own felicity we
Стр. 130 - spent and care : ImpelPd, with steps unceasing, to pursue Some fleeting good, that mocks me with the view ; That, like the circle bounding earth and skies, Allures from far, yet, as I follow, flies ; My fortune leads to traverse realms alone, And find no spot of all the world my own. Even
Стр. 135 - the ruin, heedless of the dead, The shelter-seeking peasant builds his shed, And, wond'ring man could want the larger pile, Exults, and owns his cottage with a smile. My soul turn from them, turn we to survey Where rougher climes a noble race display, Where the bleak Swiss their stormy
Стр. 133 - uplands sloping deck the mountain's side, Woods over woods in gay theatric pride; While oft' some temple's mouldring tops between, With venerable grandeur mark the scene.

Here may be seen, in bloodless pomp array'd, The paste-board triumph and the cavalcade ; Processions form'd for piety and love, A mistress or a saint in every grove. By sports like these are all their cares beguil'd, The sports of children satisfy the child;
Стр. 145 - find : With secret course, which no loud storms annoy, Glides the smooth current of domestic joy. The lifted axe, the agonizing wheel, Luke's iron crown, and Damien'sbed of steel; To men remote from power but rarely known, Leave reason, faith, and conscience,
Стр. 143 - clime endure, I only would repress them to secure: For just experience tells, in every soil, That those who think, must govern those that toil; And all that Freedom's highest aims can reach, Is but to lay proportion'd loads on each. Hence, should one order disproportion'd grow,
Стр. 133 - as it lies: Here for awhile my proper cares resign'd, Here let me sit in sorrow for mankind, Like yon' neglected shrub at random cast, That shades the steep, and sighs at every blast. Far to the right where Appenine ascends, Bright as the summer, Italy extends;
Стр. 142 - too high, Keeps man from man, and breaks the social tie ; The self-dependent lordlings stand alone, All claims that bind and sweeten life unknown; Here by the bonds of nature feebly held, Minds combat minds, repelling and repell'd. Ferments arise, imprison'd factions roar,
