Стр. 193 - Hail love ! first love, thou word that sums all bliss ! The sparkling cream of all Time's blessedness : The silken down of happiness complete ; Discerner of the ripest grapes of joy — She gathered, and selected with her hand. All finest relishes, all fairest sights ; All rarest odours, all divinest sounds ; All thoughts, all feelings dearest to the soul ; And brought the holy mixture home, and filled The heart with all superlatives of bliss.
Стр. 197 - With glory crowned of righteous actions won, The sacred thorn to memory dear, first sought The youth, and found it at the happy hour, Just when the damsel kneeled herself to pray. Wrapt in devotion, pleading with her God, She saw him not, heard not his foot approach.

Стр. 178 - Proof this, beyond all lingering of doubt, That not with natural or mental wealth, Was God delighted, or his peace secured ; That not in natural or mental wealth, Was human happiness or grandeur found. Attempt how monstrous, and how surely vain ! With things of earthly sort, with aught but God, With aught but moral excellence, truth, and love, To satisfy and fill the immortal soul ! Attempt, vain inconceivably ! attempt, To satisfy the Ocean with a drop, To marry Immortality to Death, And with the...
Стр. 175 - And seemed to mock the ruin he had wrought. As some fierce comet of tremendous size, To which the stars did reverence, as it passed : So he through learning, and through fancy took His flight sublime ; and on the loftiest top Of Fame's dread mountain sat : not soiled and worn, As if he from the earth had laboured up, But as some bird of heavenly plumage fair, He looked, which down from higher regions came, And perched it there, to see what lay beneath.
