Strana 36 - Ч were a star from its high place, and here, Draggled and wet, thy plumes torn or plucked out, Thou liest and gaspest. Whose power, kingly one ! Marked thee and smote thee ? 'T was not man's; his thought, Grasping and great as 't is, can king it not Over thy realm. He may behold thee — ay, He doth ; and his proud thought will sweep thy track, And as thou dost so will he mark the sun, And try to steal his glory. But his power, Oh 't is of earth, and not, thou king! where thou Ridest and reignest....
Strana 213 - Haham rose, and addressed them in this manner — " Men of Israel! the God of our ancestors is omniscient, and there is no one who can say why doest thou this ? This day he commands us to die for his law ; for that law which we have cherished from the first hour it was given, which we have preserved pure throughout our captivity in all nations, and which for the many consolations it has given us, and the eternal hope it communicates, can we do less than die...
Strana 133 - Held silent on her way ; no kindly ray To aid its guidance — not one glimmering star — But all was deep, impenetrable gloom ! Still to its doubtful course, that gallant ship Moved on, obedient, through the dread profound ! ******** / Hark, to the warning ! Mark the quivering gleam...
Strana 36 - ... ascend and play With the live clouds, like billows o'er Heaven's face Crowded on by loud, harrowing winds. We saw thee Mark its approach, and when thou hadst, aspiring, Shown thine own kingly daring, then afar Sweep in thy conscious kingship, scorning both The storm's fire and its bellowings, and then Thou didst ascend above its track, and calmly See it, thy subject, thundering on below ! Who cast thee down then, king ? Was it that king Who is indeed King? He who made this air Thou dar'st to...
Strana 133 - Hark to the warning ! Mark the quivering gleam ! Down — down — the tempest plunges on the sea, And the mad waves rise up to buffet it, — And now like angry demons they contend ! Loud peals the thunder — quick the lightnings flash—- The...
Strana 134 - But now a wave, high rising o'er the deep, Lifts its dire crest, and like a vengeful fiend, Comes as a mountain on ! The 'frighted band Fly in their frenzy to their sleeping Lord, And in despair's lorn accents shriek for aid : . " We perish ! — Master ! — save us, save us, Ldrd !" 6. He rose, and with a calm benignant mien, Looked on the storm : then, with a majesty, As if the Tempest were his willing slave, Commanded...
Strana 35 - Coming out from the north, or sweep away In all thy majesty and glory on Ever before it — turning now thine eye In scorn at the red lightnings launched along Thy passage, or with thy loud scream outdoing The very thunder. Thou hast been struck down From thy high place. Thy vigorous wing no more Can beat the void, and raise thee up. Thine eye Stareth no longer at the sun, or dareth All he can fling at thee. Thy noble heart, King of the sky ! no longer beats and throbs, All conscious of its innate...
Strana 134 - Now it mounts the wave, And rises, threatening, to the frowning sky, And now, down, headlong, in the yawning depths, While swelling seas break o'er it in their wrath ! But where is HE — the MASTER ? heeds he not The bursting anguish, and heart-rending cry ? Upon the deck, amid the billows...
Strana 35 - THE FALLEN EAGLE. AND thou hast then come down here from thy height, Bird of the sun ! Thou may'st no longer sweep The broad air with thy wings, fly at the storm Coming out from the north, or sweep away In all thy majesty and glory on Ever before it — turning now thine eye In scorn at the red lightnings launched along Thy passage, or with thy loud scream outdoing The very thunder. Thou hast been struck down From thy high place. Thy vigorous wing no more Can beat the void, and raise thee up. Thine...
