Стр. 98 - ... bark, well built and tall, Which angry Tides cast out on desert shore, And then retiring, left it there to rot And moulder in the winds and rains of heaven ; So he, cut from the sympathies of life, And cast ashore from Pleasure's boisterous surge, A wandering, weary, worn, and wretched thing, Scorched, and desolate, and blasted soul, A gloomy wilderness of dying thought, — Repined, and groaned, and withered from the earth. His groanings filled the land, his numbers filled : And yet he seemed...
Стр. 97 - Of fame, drank early, deeply drank, drank draughts That common millions might have quenched ; then died Of thirst, because there was no more to drink.
Стр. 198 - All knees were weary ; with one hand he put A penny in the urn of poverty, And with the other took a shilling out.
Стр. 94 - ... born, And reputation, and luxurious life : Yet, not content with ancestorial name, Or to be known because his fathers were, He on this height hereditary stood, And, gazing higher, purposed in his heart To take another step. Above him seemed, Alone, the mount of song, the lofty seat Of canonized bards; and thitherward, By nature taught, and inward melody, In prime of youth, he bent his eagle eye. No cost was spared. What books he wished, he* read; What sage to hear, he heard ; what scenes to see,...
Стр. 153 - Harp ! lift thy voice on high ! shout, angels, shout ! And loudest, ye redeemed ! glory to God, And to the Lamb, all glory and all praise, All glory and all praise, at morn and even, That come and go eternally, and find Us happy still, and Thee for ever blessed !

Стр. 104 - The mother's tender heart, while round her hung The offspring of her love, and lisped her name, As living jewels dropped unstained from heaven, That made her fairer far, and sweeter seem, Than every ornament of costliest hue ! And who hath not been ravished, as she passed With all her playful band of little ones, Like Luna, with her daughters of the sky, Walking in matron majesty and...
Стр. 197 - He was a man Who stole the livery of the court of heaven, To serve the devil in...
Стр. 174 - That morning, thou, that slumbered not before, -Nor slept, great Ocean ! laid thy waves to rest, And hushed thy mighty minstrelsy. No breath Thy deep composure stirred, no fin, no oar ; Like beauty newly dead, so calm, so still, So lovely, thou, beneath the light that fell From angel-chariots, sentinelled on high, Reposed, and listened, and saw thy living change, Thy dead arise.
Стр. 107 - And all the Winds slept soundly. Nature seemed, In silent contemplation, to adore Its Maker. Now and then, the aged leaf Fell from its fellows, rustling to the ground ; And, as it fell, bade man think on his end.
Стр. 186 - ... showed, But did no more — gave value infinite ; Proved still his reasoning best, and his belief, Though propped on fancies, wild as madmen's dreams, Most rational, most scriptural, most sound With mortal heresy denouncing all Who in his arguments could see no force. On points of faith too fine for human sight, And never understood in heaven, he placed His everlasting hope, undoubting placed, And died : and when he opened his ear, prepared To hear, beyond the grave, the minstrelsy Of bliss —...
