Стр. 5 - Millions of spiritual creatures walk the earth Unseen, both when we wake, and when we sleep. All these with ceaseless praise his works behold Both day and night : how often from the steep Of echoing hill or thicket have we heard Celestial voices to the midnight air, Sole, or responsive each to other's note, Singing their great Creator ? oft in bands While they keep watch, or nightly rounding walk With heavenly touch of instrumental sounds In full harmonic number join'd, their songs Divide the night,...
Стр. 379 - The darksome pines that o'er yon rocks reclin'd Wave high, and murmur to the hollow wind, The wand'ring streams that shine between the hills, The grots that echo to the tinkling rills, The dying gales that pant upon the trees, The lakes that quiver to the curling breeze; No more these scenes my meditation aid, Or lull to rest the visionary maid.
Стр. 379 - But o'er the twilight groves and dusky caves, Long-sounding aisles and intermingled graves, Black Melancholy sits, and round her throws A death-like silence, and a dread repose : Her gloomy presence saddens all the scene, Shades every flower, and darkens every green ; Deepens the murmur of the falling floods, And breathes a browner horror on the woods.
Стр. 516 - It is good for me that thou hast humbled me, that I may learn thy justifications.
Стр. 57 - In other times and in other places, one single edifice, a temple, a theatre, a tomb, that had escaped the wreck of ages, would have enchanted us; nay, an arch, the remnant of a wall, even one solitary column was beheld with veneration ; but to discover a single ancient hous.e, the abode of a Roman in his privacy, the scene of his domestic hours, was an object of fond, but hopeless longing. Here, not a temple...
Стр. 189 - ... brazen beams, and was covered with brazen plates ; it was adorned with statues and chariots all of brass gilt : the pavement was of variegated marble. The entrance was at one end by a triumphal arch, at the other and opposite was a temple ; on one side a Basilica, on the other a public library : in the centre rose the celebrated column crowned with the colossal statue of Trajan. Apollodorus was the architect of this wonderful pile...
Стр. 137 - Eustace asks—" May it not be ascribed to the corruptions of the national religion, to the facility of absolution, and to the easy purchase of indulgences?
Стр. 471 - ... of a double line of twoand-twenty noble windows. The portico, which is wide and spacious, conducts to a staircase, each step of which is formed of a single block of Carrara marble. A large antichamber then leads to ten saloons either opening into one another, or communicating by spacious galleries. These saloons are...
Стр. 30 - Vesbius umbris, presserat hic madidos nobilis uva lacus : haec iuga, quam Nysae colles plus Bacchus amavit, hoc nuper Satyri monte dedere choros. haec Veneris sedes, Lacedaemone gratior illi, 5 hic locus Herculeo nomine clarus erat. cuncta iacent flammis et tristi mersa favilla : nec superi vellent hoc licuisse sibi.
Стр. 94 - Sybarites are said to have occupied the neighbouring plain ; the Dorians therefore appear to have the fairest claim to these majestic and everlasting monuments. But at what period were they erected ? To judge from their form we must conclude that they are the oldest specimens of Grecian architecture now in existence. In beholding them, and contemplating their solidity, bordering upon heaviness, we are tempted to consider them as...
