Strana 127 - She woos the gentle air To hide her guilty front with innocent snow...
Strana 153 - Nor, Shenstone, thou Shalt pass without thy meed, thou son of peace ! Who knew'st, perchance, to harmonize thy shades Still softer than thy song; yet was that song Nor rude, nor inharmonious, when attun'd To pastoral plaint, or tale of slighted love.
Strana 124 - Divine Sacred Masonry define; Round our order close we bind Laws of love to all mankind! Thus like elves in Mystic ring, Merry Masons drink and sing.
Strana 149 - ... the scene Thee, the great Lord of light, proclaim. 4 And groves, and vales, and rocks, and hills, And every flower, and every tree, Ten thousand creatures warm with life, Have each a grateful song for thee.
Strana xvi - GD to be absent from the body, is sometimes (not to speak it profanely) to be present with the Lord.
Strana 149 - And whether grief oppress the heart ; Or whether joy elate the breast ; Or life still keep its little course ; Or death invite the heart to rest...
Strana 164 - To winne him worship, and her grace to have, Which of all earthly things he most did crave...
Strana 225 - There is an easy ascent to the top, and the view far preferable to that on Castle-hill (which you remember) because this is lower and nearer to the Lake: for I find all points that are much elevated spoil the beauty of the valley, and make its parts (which are not large) look poor and diminutive.
Strana 151 - Vanbrugh's attempt, therefore, seems to have been an effort of genius : and if we can keep the imagination apart from the five orders, we must allow that he has created a magnificent whole; which is invested with an air of grandeur seldom seen in a more regular style of building.
Strana 149 - Those, too, who bend with age and care, And faint and tremble near the tomb, Who, sick'ning at the present scenes, Sigh for that better state to come : 5 All, great Creator!
