Стр. xxi - Home of fadeless splendour, Of flowers that fear no thorn, Where they shall dwell as children Who here as exiles mourn; 'Midst power that knows no limit, Where wisdom has no bound, The beatific vision Shall glad the saints around.
Стр. 239 - Ambrosio listened with delight : never had he heard a voice more harmonious ; and he wondered how such heavenly sounds could be produced by any but angels. But though he indulged the sense of hearing, a single look convinced him that he must not trust to that of sight. The songstress sat at a little distance from his bed. The attitude in which she bent over her harp was easy and graceful : her cowl had fallen backwarder than usual : two coral lips were 'visible, ripe, fresh, and melting, and a chin,...
Стр. 113 - Or be he beggar ; be Islam or heathenesse his creed ; A few days in earth's inn a guest is he, then must he speed : Something to render gay that time is surely wisdom's need. " Our coming to this world is one ; man must reflect, survey; Care must one...
Стр. 105 - Arsh hang now thy sabre, sparkling like the Pleiads bright !" Through this joy beneath thy shade the world doth its desires behold ; With thy praises eloquent the tongues of all, both young and old. Thou to Faith and Empire then didst render services untold Hurling down to earth the foeman's house in one assault right...
Стр. 113 - Events the workings of the Lord Most High make manifest; Being the mirror is in which the Absolute's exprest ; He who this mystery perceives in every state is blest ; The exit of each one who enters earth decreed doth rest. " Our coming to this world is one ; man must reflect, survey; Care must one banish, and look out for calm and quiet aye.
Стр. 111 - Fear in our country dwelleth not, in mountain or in wold : In every corner of our land croucheth a lion bold. " God is Most Great ! " we shout in rush and charge on field of fight ; We're Ottomans! our lives we give, our gain is glory bright. Then let the cannon roar, and shower its flames on every side ! For those our brothers brave let Heaven ope its portals wide ! What have we found on earth that one from death should flee or hide ? " God is Most Great ! " we shout in rush and charge on field...
Стр. 109 - ... not to know ; Thus pretending, she who doth the soul despite feigns not to know. Though I fail naught in her service, she doth me as alien treat ; Know not I why yonder Darling, earth's Delight, feigns not to know. If I dare to speak my eager longing those her lips to kiss, Friendship she disclaims, in sooth with cruel slight feigns not to know. That she whets her glance's arrow and therewith doth pierce the heart, E'en her bow-like eyebrow, yonder Ban of might feigns not to know. Well the loved...
Стр. 62 - I afterwards learned, he entertained them at a sumptuous feast. At the moment that the bridal procession passed from the hall the prefect turned to the crowd and said — " I am quite aware that the course I have pursued on this occasion is an unusual one, and that it could only be justified by circumstances such as I was called upon to encounter. The result, however, has surpassed my highest expectations, and to-day we have seen two veritable dragons of learning united to beings of more than earthly...
Стр. 168 - The size and weight of the oar was so great that, except at the end where it was tapered to a manageable size, it was necessary to work it by handles fixed to the side. The slave to whom the end was allotted was always the strongest of the oarsmen; he was captain of the oar, and directed the movements of the others. He was called the strokesman...
Стр. 53 - So down they sat to the task, and, after much cogitation, Daffodil drafted the following : — " May it please your Excellency, — Your humble servants on their knees have received the jade-like epistle and proclamation which you deigned to send them. With rapture they have admired the pearl-like style of your brilliant pencil, and with endless gratitude...
