Стр. 404 - All strength — all terror, single or in bands, That ever was put forth in personal form — Jehovah — with His thunder, and the choir Of shouting Angels, and the empyreal thrones — I pass them unalarmed.
Стр. 404 - Not Chaos, not The darkest pit of lowest Erebus, Nor aught of blinder vacancy — scooped out By help of dreams, can breed such fear and awe As fall upon us often when we look Into our minds, into the mind of man, My haunt, and the main region of my song.
Стр. 222 - Ecce avia, aut metuens divum matertera, cunis Exemit puerum, frontemque atque uda labella Infami digito et lustralibus ante salivis Expiat, urentes oculos inhibere perita.
