Стр. 65 - The word unto the prophet spoken Was writ on tables yet unbroken ; The word by seers or sibyls told, In groves of oak, or fanes of gold, Still floats upon the morning wind, Still whispers to the willing mind. One accent of the Holy Ghost The heedless world hath never lost.
Стр. 66 - Regions like this, which have come down to us rude and untouched from the beginning of time, fill the mind with grand conceptions, far beyond the efforts of art and cultivation.

Hills and vales, Mountains and moors of Devon, ye have lost The enchantments, the delights, the visions all, The elfin visions that so blessed the sight In the old days romantic.

Стр. 27 - ... the air So emulously that its loftiest branch May brush the traveller's brow. The twisted roots Have clasp'd, in search of nourishment, the rocks, And straggled wide, and pierced the stony soil : — In vain, denied maternal succour, here A dwarfish race has risen.
