Strana 230 - So saying, on he led his radiant Files, Dazzling the Moon ; these to the Bower direct In search of whom they sought: him there they found Squat like a Toad, close at the ear of Eve ; Assaying by his Devilish art to reach The Organs of her Fancy, and with them forge Illusions as he list, Phantasms and Dreams, Or if, inspiring venom, he might taint Th...
Strana 176 - Sweet is the breath of Morn, her rising sweet, With charm of earliest birds : pleasant the sun, When first on this delightful land he spreads His orient beams, on herb, tree, fruit, and flower, Glistering with dew ; fragrant the fertile earth After soft showers; and sweet the coming on Of grateful Evening mild...
