Էջ 11 - THE AUTHOR'S ABSTRACT OF MELANCHOLY. WHEN I go musing all alone, Thinking of divers things foreknown ; When I build castles in the air, Void of sorrow, and void of fear, Pleasing myself with phantasms sweet ; Methinks, the time runs very fleet ! All my joys to this, are folly ; Nought so sweet as Melancholy...
Էջ 3 - Oh, call my brother back to me, I cannot play alone, The summer comes, with flower and bee, Where is my brother gone? The butterfly is glancing bright Across the sunbeam's track; I care not now to chase its flight, Oh!
Էջ 11 - When to myself I act and smile, With pleasing thoughts the time beguile, By a brook side, or wood so green, Unheard, unsought for, or unseen, A thousand pleasures do me bless, And crown my soul with happiness. All my joys besides are folly, None so sweet as melancholy.

I waste for him my breath Who wasted his for me ; but mine returns,...
Էջ 15 - Of earth, but to despise. Opinion is the rate of things, From hence our peace doth flow; I have a better fate than kings, Because I think it so.
Էջ 29 - Oh take me to your hospitable dome ! Keen blows the wind, and piercing is the cold ! Short is my passage to the friendly tomb, For I am poor, and miserably old.
Էջ 5 - ERE on my bed my limbs I lay, God grant me grace my prayers to say : O God ! preserve my mother dear In strength and health for many a year ; And, O ! preserve my father too, And may I pay him reverence due ; And may I my best thoughts employ To be my parents...
Էջ 3 - HI call my brother back to me ! I cannot play alone ; The summer comes with flower and bee ; Where is my brother gone?
Էջ 9 - I KNOW a maiden fair to see, Take care ! She can both false and friendly be, Beware ! Beware ! Trust her not, She is fooling thee ! She has two eyes, so soft and brown, Take care ! She gives a side-glance and looks down, Beware ! Beware ! Trust her not, She is fooling thee...
