Стр. 90 - By the struggling moonbeam's misty light, And the lantern dimly burning. No useless coffin enclosed his breast, Not in sheet nor in shroud we wound him; But he lay like a warrior taking his rest, With his martial cloak around him.

Стр. 350 - And saw within the moonlight in his room, Making it rich, and like a lily in bloom, An angel writing in a book of gold.
