Стр. 29 - Of silence, though there be no voice : the clouds, The mist, the shadows, light of golden suns, Motions of moonlight, all come thither, — touch, And have an answer, — thither come, and shape A language not unwelcome to sick hearts And idle spirits : there the Sun himself, At the calm close of Summer's longest day, Rests his substantial orb : between those heights And on the top of either pinnacle, More keenly than elsewhere in night's blue vault, Sparkle the stars, as of their station proud....
Стр. 112 - Thou, whose massy strength and stature scorn The power of years — pre-eminent, and placed Apart, to overlook the circle vast — Speak, Giant-mother ! tell it to the Morn While she dispels the cumbrous shades of Night ; Let the Moon hear, emerging from a cloud...
Стр. 131 - Producing change of beauty ever new. —Ah ! that such beauty, varying in the light Of living nature, cannot be portrayed By words, nor by the pencil's silent skill; But is the property of him alone Who hath beheld it, noted it with care, And in his mind recorded it with love!
Стр. ii - Out of an instrument; and while the streams (As at a first creation and in haste To exercise their untried faculties) Descending from the region of the clouds, And starting from the hollows of the earth More multitudinous every moment, rend Their way before them — what a joy to roam An equal among mightiest energies...
Стр. 28 - So placed, to be shut out from all the world ! Urn-like it was in shape, deep as an urn ; With rocks encompassed, save that to the south Was one small opening, where a heath-clad ridge Supplied a boundary less abrupt and close ; A quiet treeless nook, with two green fields, A liquid pool that glittered in the sun, And one bare dwelling ; one abode, no more...
Стр. vii - O Nature, how in every charm supreme! Whose votaries feast on raptures ever new l O for the voice and fire of seraphim, To sing thy glories with devotion due ! Blest be the day I 'scaped the wrangling crew From Pyrrho's maze, and Epicurus...
Стр. 5 - Water, though on a higher level, the larger Levers Water ; and on the western side of the hill, but not seen from the summit, is Gates Water, lying at the foot of the precipitous Dow Crag. Standing open to the south, unincumbered by other mountains, the Old Man commands a complete view of all the fine bays and estuaries of the Lancashire, and part of the Cumberland coast— the Isles of Walney and Man — and in the direction of the river Duddon, on a favourable day, Snowdon and its neighbouring...
Стр. 32 - A copious stream with boldly-winding course ; Here traceable, there hidden, — there again To sight restored, and glittering in the sun. On the stream's bank, and everywhere appeared...
Стр. 132 - Oft did the cliffs reverberate the sound Of parted fragments tumbling from on high; And from the summit of that craggy mound The perching eagle oft was heard to cry, Or on resounding wings, to shoot athwart the sky.
Стр. 70 - To the will of the Creating Mind, It springs at once, with sudden leap, Down from the immeasurable steep ; From rock to rock, with shivering force rebounding, The mighty cataract rushes : heaven around, Like thunder, with the incessant roar resounding, And Meru's summit shaking with the sound. Wide spreads the snowy foam, the sparkling spray Dances aloft ; and ever there at morning The...
