Seite 100 - They sin who tell us Love can die. With life all other passions fly, All others are but vanity. In Heaven Ambition cannot dwell, Nor Avarice in the vaults of Hell ; Earthly these passions of the Earth, They perish where they have their birth ; But Love is indestructible. Its holy flame for ever burneth, From Heaven it came, to Heaven returneth...
Seite 101 - Oh! when a mother meets on high The babe she lost in infancy, Hath she not then, for pains and fears, The day of woe, the watchful night, For all her sorrows, all her tears, An over-payment of delight?
Seite 18 - I charm thy life From the weapons of strife, From stone and from wood, From fire and from flood, From the serpent's tooth, And the beasts of blood : From Sickness I charm thee, And Time shall not harm thee, But Earth which is mine, Its fruits shall deny thee ; And Water shall hear me, And know thee and fly thee ; And the Winds shall not touch thee When they pass by thee, And the Dews shall not wet thee, When they fall nigh thee...
Seite 3 - tis the funeral trumpet's breath, Tis the dirge of death! At once ten thousand drums begin. With one long thunder-peal the ear assailing; Ten thousand voices then join in, And with one deep and general din Pour their wild wailing. The song of praise is drown'd Amid the deafening sound; You hear no more the trumpet's tone.
Seite 60 - Daughter of Earth ! therein thou deem'st aright; And never yet did form more beautiful, In dreams of night descending from on high, Bless the religious Virgin's gifted sight, Nor like a vision of delight...
Seite 59 - Till thou hast reached its orb of chrysolite. The sail, from end to end displayed, Bent, like a rainbow, o'er the Maid. An Angel's head, with visual eye, Through trackless space, directs its chosen way; Nor aid of wing nor foot nor fin Requires to voyage o'er the obedient sky. Smooth as the swan, when not a breeze at even Disturbs the surface of the silver stream, Through air and sunshine sails the Ship of Heaven.
Seite 8 - Woe! woe! Nealliny, The young Nealliny! They strip her ornaments away. Bracelet and anklet, ring, and chain, and zone; Around her neck they leave The marriage knot alone, . . That marriage band, which when Yon waning moon was young, Around her virgin neck With bridal joy was hung.
Seite 251 - The soul itself is its own witness; the soul itself is its own refuge; offend not thy conscious soul, the supreme internal witness of men !.. The sinful have said in their hearts, none see us. Yes, the gods distinctly see them, and so does the spirit within their breasts..
Seite 143 - Let her continue till death forgiving all injuries, performing harsh duties, avoiding every sensual pleasure, and cheerfully practising the incomparable rules of virtue, which have been followed by such women, as were devoted to one only husband.
Seite 35 - EVENING comes on : arising from the stream, Homeward the tall flamingo wings his flight; And, where he sails athwart the setting beam, His scarlet plumage glows with deeper light. The watchman, at the wished approach of night, Gladly forsakes the field, where he all day, To scare the winged plunderers from their prey, With shout and sling, on yonder clay-built height, Hath borne the sultry ray. Hark...
