Hail, bounteous May, that dost inspire Mirth, and youth, and warm desire ; Woods and groves are of thy dressing, Hill and dale doth boast thy blessing. Thus we salute thee with our early song, And welcome thee, and wish thee long.

Seite 80 - ... when the fire was entered, how quickly did it run round the galleries, filling them with flames : then descending the stairs, compasseth the walks, giving forth flaming vollies, and filling the court with sheets of fire ; by and by the kings fell all down upon their faces, and the greater part of the stone building after them (the founder's statue only remaining) with such noise as was astonishing.
Seite 228 - As if here were those cooler shades of love. Can such delights be in the street And open fields and we not see't?
Seite 52 - E'en such is man, whose thread is spun, Drawn out, and cut, and so is done. The rose withers, the blossom blasteth, The flower fades, the morning hasteth, The sun sets, the shadow flies, The gourd consumes,— and man he dies.
Seite 228 - Besides, the childhood of the day has kept, Against you come, some orient pearls unwept; Come and receive them while the light Hangs on the dew-locks of the night: And Titan on the eastern hill Retires himself, or else stands still Till you come forth. Wash, dress, be brief in praying: Few beads are best when once we go a-Maying.
