Seite 32 - When nations are to perish in their sins, 'Tis in the church the leprosy begins : The priest, whose office is, with zeal sincere, To watch the fountain, and preserve it clear, Carelessly nods and sleeps upon the brink, While others poison what the flock must drink...
Seite 100 - O'er that brow a shadow fling ? Go, forget me — and to-morrow Brightly smile and sweetly sing. Smile — though I shall not be near thee ; Sing — though I shall never hear thee ; May thy soul with pleasure shine, Lasting as the gloom of mine. Like the sun, thy presence glowing, Clothes the meanest things in light ; And when thou, like him, art going, Loveliest objects fade in night. All things look'd...
Seite 315 - Like the sun, thy presence glowing, Clothes the meanest things in light, And when thou, like him, art going, Loveliest objects fade in night. All things looked so bright about thee, That they nothing seem without thee, By that pure and lucid mind Earthly things were too refined. Go, thou vision wildly gleaming, Softly on my soul that fell ; Go, for me no longer beaming — Hope and Beauty ! fare ye well...
Seite 3 - SWEET stream, that winds through yonder glade, Apt emblem of a virtuous maid — Silent and chaste she steals along, Far from the world's gay busy throng ; • With gentle yet prevailing force, Intent upon her destined course ; Graceful and useful all she does, Blessing and blest where'er she goes. Pure-bosom'd as that watery glass, And heaven reflected in her face.
Seite 3 - LADY. SWEET stream, that winds through yonder glade, Apt emblem of a virtuous maid — Silent and chaste she steals along, Far from the world's gay busy throng ; • With gentle yet prevailing force, Intent upon her destined course ; Graceful and useful all she does, Blessing and blest where'er she goes.
Seite 181 - Breathing astonishment! of witching rhymes, And evil spirits; of the death-bed call Of him who robb'd the widow, and devour'd The orphan's portion; of unquiet souls Risen from the grave to ease the heavy guilt Of deeds in life conceal'd; of shapes that walk At dead of night, and clank their chains, and wave The torch of hell around the murderer's bed.
Seite 181 - Risen from the grave to ease the heavy guilt Of deeds in life conceal'd ; of shapes that walk At dead of night, and clank their chains, and wave The torch of hell around the murderer's bed. At every solemn pause the crowd recoil, Gazing each other speechless, and congeal'd With shivering sighs ; till eager for th...
Seite 138 - The time would e'er be o'er, And I on thee should look my last, And thou shouldst smile no more! And still upon that face I look, And think 'twill smile again ; And still the thought I will not brook...
Seite 166 - LOOKED upon his brow, — no sign Of guilt or fear was there ; He stood as proud by that death-shrine As even o'er Despair He had a power ; in his eye There was a quenchless energy, A spirit that could dare The deadliest form that Death could take. And dare it for the daring's sake.
Seite 268 - Ere my eyes could twice explore her ; Yet it is for the fairy intelligence there. And her warm, warm heart I adore her.
