Стр. 303 - Where slaves once more their native land behold, No fiends torment, no Christians thirst for gold. To Be, contents his natural desire, He asks no Angel's wing, no Seraph's fire; But thinks, admitted to that equal sky, His faithful dog shall bear him company.
Стр. 69 - The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land; 13 The fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grape give a good smell.
Стр. 89 - Fountain heads and pathless groves, Places which pale passion loves ! Moonlight walks, when all the fowls Are warmly housed save bats and owls ! A midnight bell, a parting groan, These are the sounds we feed upon ; Then stretch our bones in a still gloomy valley : Nothing's so dainty sweet as lovely melancholy.

Стр. 84 - Alitis in parvae subitam collecta figuram, Quae quondam in bustis aut culminibus desertis Nocte sedens, serum canit importuna per umbras ; Hanc versa in faciem, Turni se pestis ob ora 865 Fertque refertque sonans, clipeumque everberat alis.
Стр. 88 - Dame. Yes, I have brought, to help our vows, Horned poppy, cypress boughs, The fig-tree wild that grows on tombs, And juice that from the larch-tree comes, The basilisk's blood, and the viper's skin : And now our orgies let us begin.
