Էջ 74 - Or the unseen Genius of the wood. But let my due feet never fail To walk the studious cloister's pale, And love the high embowed roof, With antique pillars massy proof, And storied windows, richly dight, Casting a dim religious light.
Էջ 178 - People who saw nothing of the godly but their uncouth visages, and heard nothing from them but their groans and their whining hymns, might laugh at them. But those had little reason to laugh who encountered them in the hall of debate or in the field of battle.
Էջ 154 - But scarce again his horn he wound, When lo ! forth starting at the sound From underneath an aged oak, That slanted from the islet rock, A damsel guider of its way, A little skiff shot to the bay...
Էջ 204 - Hall, and there find the boys' verses, 'De Peste'; it being their custom to make verses at Shrove-tide. I read several, and very good they were; better, I think, than ever I made when I was a boy, and in rolls as long and longer than the whole Hall, by much.

Էջ 222 - I have not time to say more, but to beg you will give my duty to the queen, and let her know her army has had a glorious victory. M. Tallard and two other generals are in my coach, and I am following the rest. The bearer, my aide-de-camp, Colonel Parke, will give her an account of what has passed. I shall do it in a day or two, by another more at large. — MARLBOROUGH...
Էջ 178 - The intensity of their feelings on one subject made them tranquil on every other. One overpowering sentiment had subjected to itself pity and hatred, ambition and fear. Death had lost its terrors and pleasure its charms. They had their smiles and their tears, their raptures and their sorrows, but not for the things of this world.
Էջ 153 - As we were returning to our inn, we happened to meet some country people celebrating their Harvest Home ; their last load of corn they crown with flowers, having besides an image richly dressed, by which perhaps they would signify Ceres : this they keep moving about, while men and women, men and maidservants, riding through the streets in the cart, shout as loud as they can till they arrive at the barn.
