Стр. 22 - And down through the ceiling, and up through the floor, From the right and the left, from behind and before, From within and without, from above and below, And all at once to the Bishop they go.

Стр. 150 - A man approach'd me, by his grandchild led— A blind old man, and she a fair young maid, Listening in love to what her grandsire said. ' And thus with gentle voice he spoke — " Come lead me, lassie, to the shade, " Where willows grow beside the brook ; •• For well I know the sound it made, " When dashing o'er the stony rill, " It murmur'd to St. Osyth's Mill.

His master fed him largely ; but not that, Nor aught of kindness, made the snarler fat.
Стр. 151 - O then, my lassie, lead the way To Comfort's Home, the ancient inn : That something holds, if we can pay — Old David is our living kin ; A servant once, he still preserves His name, and in his office serves !" " Alas ! that mine should be the fate Old David's sorrows to relate : But they were brief ; not long before He died, his office was no more. The kennel stands upon the ground, With something of the former sound...
Стр. 114 - The whistling Boy that holds the plough, Lured by the tale that soldiers tell, Resolves to part, yet knows not how To leave the land he loves so well. He now rejects the thought, and now Looks o'er the lea, and sighs
Стр. 152 - But they were brief ; not long before • • He died, his office was no more. • • The kennel stands upon the ground, " With something of the former sound.
Стр. 151 - Old Bulmer's Oak, is gone to sea. " The church-way walk is now no more, " And men must other ways explore : " Though this indeed promotion gains, " For this the park's new wall contains ; " And here I fear we shall not...
Стр. 150 - They've cut the brook a straighter bed : No shades the present lords allow, The miller only murmurs now ; The waters now his mill forsake, And form a pond they call a lake.
