Strana 144 - But I tell you of a truth, many widows were in Israel in the days of Elias, when the heaven was shut up three years and six months...
Strana 139 - Wilt thou upon the high and giddy mast Seal up the ship-boy's eyes, and rock his brains In cradle of the rude imperious surge ; And in the visitation of the winds, Who take the ruffian billows by the top, Curling their monstrous heads, and hanging them With deafning clamours in the slippery clouds, That, with the hurly, death itself awakes ?

Nathless he so endured, till on the beach Of that inflamed sea he stood, and called His legions — Angel Forms, who lay entranced Thick as autumnal leaves that strow the brooks In Vallombrosa, where the Etrurian shades High over-arched embower...
