Seite 132 - To ease the griefs of discontented wight, Spread forth his tender, soft and nimble wings, In his dull arms folding the virgin bright ; And love, his mother, and the graces kept Strong watch and ward, while this fair lady slept.
Seite 158 - Thus to himself he thought: how many bright And 'splendent lamps shine in heaven's temple high! Day hath his golden sun, her moon the night, Her fix'd and wand'ring stars the azure sky...
