Seite 246 - And ruder words will soon rush in To spread the breach that words begin ; And eyes forget the gentle ray They wore in courtship's smiling day ; And voices lose the tone that shed A tenderness round all they said; Till fast declining, one by one, The sweetnesses of love are gone...
Seite 1 - Whom call we gay? That honour has been long The boast of mere pretenders to the name. The innocent are gay — the lark is gay, That dries his feathers, saturate with dew, Beneath the rosy cloud, while yet the beams Of dayspring overshoot his humble nest.
Seite 261 - Cancel all our vows! And when we meet at any time again, Be it not seen in either of our brows That we one jot of former love retain. Now at the last gasp of Love's latest breath, When, his pulse failing, Passion speechless lies, When Faith is kneeling by his bed of death, And Innocence is closing up his eyes: Now, if thou wouldst, when all have given him over, From death to life thou might'st him yet recover!
Seite 263 - The path of sorrow, and that path alone, .. Leads to the land where sorrow is unknown : No traveller ever reached that blest abode, Who found not thorns and briers in his road.

Seite 164 - There's some say that we wan, Some say that they wan, Some say that nane wan at a', man ; But ae thing I'm sure, That at Sheriffmuir A battle there was, which I saw, man ; And we ran, and they ran, And they ran and we ran, And we ran, and they ran awa, man.
Seite 186 - LORDLY gallants, tell me this : Though my safe content you weigh not, In your greatness what one bliss Have you gain'd, that I enjoy not ? You have honours, you have wealth, I have peace, and I have health ; All the day I merry make, And at night no care I take. Bound to none my fortunes be...
