Стр. 24 - And ancient towers crown his brow, That cast an awful look below; Whose ragged walls the ivy creeps, And with her arms from falling keeps; So both a safety from the wind On mutual dependence find. 'Tis now the raven's bleak abode; 'Tis now th...
Стр. 25 - Thus she dresses green and gay, To disperse our cares away. Ever charming, ever new, When will the landscape tire the view ! The fountain's fall, the river's flow, The woody valleys, warm and low ; The windy summit., wild and high, Roughly rushing on the sky ! The pleasant seat, the ruin'd tower, The naked rock, the shady bower ; The town and village, dome and farm, Each give each a double charm, As pearls upon an /Ethiop's arm.
Стр. 26 - Be full, ye courts, be great who will; Search for Peace with all your skill: Open wide the lofty door, Seek her on the marble floor, In vain you search, she is not there; In vain ye search the domes of care !

Стр. 23 - Draw the landscape bright and strong Grongar in whose mossy cells Sweetly musing Quiet dwells; Grongar in whose silent shade For the modest Muses made So oft I have, the evening still, At the fountain of a rill...
Стр. 24 - Phillis, queen of love Gaudy as the opening dawn Lies a long and level lawn On which a dark hill, steep and high, Holds and charms the wandering eye.
Стр. 26 - I lie; While the wanton Zephyr sings, And in the vale perfumes his wings; While the waters murmur deep; While the shepherd charms his sheep; While the birds unbounded fly, And with musick fill the sky, Now, ev'n now, my joys run high.
