Seite 309 - I arise from dreams of thee In the first sweet sleep of night, When the winds are breathing low, And the stars are shining bright: I arise from dreams of thee, And a spirit in my feet Hath led me — who knows how? To thy chamber window, Sweet! The wandering airs they faint On the dark, the silent stream — The Champak odours fail Like sweet thoughts in a dream; The nightingale's complaint, It dies upon her heart; — As I must on thine, Oh, beloved as thou art!

Seite 505 - A GENTLE knight was pricking on the plain, Yclad in mighty arms and silver shield, Wherein old dints of deep wounds did remain, The cruel marks of many a bloody field ; Yet arms till that time did he never wield : His angry steed did chide his foaming bit, As much disdaining to the curb to yield : Full jolly knight he seemed, and fair did sit, As one for knightly jousts and fierce encounters fit.
Seite 504 - Unless they graz'd there's not one word Of their provision on record ; Which made some confidently write, They had no stomachs but to fight.
Seite 505 - A lovely Ladie rode him faire beside, Upon a lowly Asse more white than snow, Yet she much whiter ; but the same did hide Under a vele, that wimpled was full low...
Seite 317 - I tell you, there are seven thousand men, and of the Church of England too, that have not bowed the knee to Baal.
