Стр. 110 - TIME Unfathomable Sea! whose waves are years, Ocean of Time, whose waters of deep woe Are brackish with the salt of human tears! Thou shoreless flood, which in thy ebb and flow Claspest the limits of mortality, And sick of prey, yet howling on for more, Vomitest thy wrecks on its inhospitable shore; Treacherous in calm, and terrible in storm, Who shall put forth on thee, Unfathomable Sea?
Стр. 227 - ... The poet's eye, in a fine frenzy rolling. Doth glance from heaven to earth, from earth to heaven; And as imagination bodies forth The forms of things unknown, the poet's pen Turns them to shapes, and gives to airy nothing A local habitation and a name. Such tricks hath strong imagination, That, if it would but apprehend some joy. It comprehends some bringer of that joy; Or in the night, imagining some fear, How easy is a bush supposed a bear!
Стр. 203 - Her vest of gold Broidered with flowers, and clasped from head to foot: An emerald stone in every golden clasp; And on her brow, fairer than alabaster, A coronet of pearls. But then her face, So lovely, yet so arch, so full of mirth, — The overflowings of an innocent heart, — It haunts me still, though many a year has fled, Like some wild melody.
Стр. 87 - Beauty lures the full-grown child, With hue as bright, and wing as wild ; A chase of idle hopes and fears, Begun in folly, closed in tears. If won, to equal ills...
Стр. 179 - ALL the flowers of the spring Meet to perfume our burying; These have but their growing prime, And man does flourish but his time: Survey our progress from our birth — We are set, we grow, we turn to earth. Courts adieu, and all delights, All bewitching appetites!
Стр. 47 - And so they do, that have unfit designs Upon the parties they pretend to love. For what's more monstrous, more a prodigy, Than to hear me protest truth of affection Unto a person that I would dishonour ? And...
Стр. 110 - TIME UNFATHOMABLE Sea! whose waves are years, Ocean of Time, whose waters of deep woe Are brackish with the salt of human tears! Thou shoreless flood, which in thy ebb and flow Claspest the limits of mortality! And sick of prey, yet howling on for more, Vomitest thy wrecks on its inhospitable shore ; Treacherous in calm, and terrible in storm, Who shall put forth on thee, Unfathomable Sea?
Стр. 92 - I love to wander on thy pebbled beach, Marking the sunlight at the evening hour, And hearken to the thoughts thy waters teach — Eternity — Eternity — and Power.
Стр. 16 - O do not mock, Selina ; let not excellence, Which you are full of, make you proud and scornful. I am a Gentleman ; though my outward part Cannot attract affection, yet some have told me, Nature hath made me what she need not shame. Yet look into my heart ; there you shall see What you cannot despise, for there you are With all your graces waiting on you ; there Love hath made you a throne to sit, and rule O'er Infortunio ; all my thoughts obeying, And honouring you as queen.
Стр. 255 - O, stay, and think awhile ; I cannot relish You should say final : sweet, deliberate ; It doth concern all the estate I have ; I mean not dunghill treasure, but my life Doth stand or fall to it ; if your answer be That you can love me, be as swift as lightning; But if you mean to kill me, and reject My so long love-devotions, which I have paid As to an altar, stay a little longer, And let me count the riches I shall lose By one poor airy word...
