Стр. 111 - FAR in a wild, unknown to public view, From youth to age a reverend hermit grew ; The moss his bed, the cave his humble cell, His food the fruits, his drink the crystal well : Remote from man, with God he pass'd the days, Prayer all his business, all his pleasure praise.
Стр. 113 - The pair arrive : the liveried servants wait; Their lord receives them at the pompous gate. The table groans with costly piles of food, And all is more than hospitably good. Then led to rest, the day's long toil they drown, Deep sunk in sleep, and silk, and heaps of down. At length 'tis morn, and at the dawn of day, Along the...
Стр. 113 - And hail, my son," the reverend sire replied ; Words follow'd words, from question answer flow'd, And talk of various kind deceiv'd the road ; Till each with other pleas'd, and loth to part, While in their age they differ, join in heart : Thus stands an aged elm in ivy bound, Thus youthful ivy clasps an elm around. Now sunk the sun ; the closing hour of day Came onward, mantled o'er with sober gray...

Thus artists melt the sullen ore of lead, With heaping coals of fire upon its head; In the kind warmth the metal learns to glow, And, loose from dross, the silver runs below.
Стр. 115 - Slow creaking turns the door with jealous care, And half he welcomes in the shivering pair...
Стр. 115 - The stinted kindness of this churlish soul ! But now the clouds in airy tumult fly ; The sun emerging opes an azure sky...
Стр. 117 - Without a vain, without a grudging heart, To him who gives us all, I yield a part; From him you come, for him accept it here, A frank and sober, more than costly cheer.
Стр. 117 - Not hell, though hell's black jaws in sunder part, And breathe blue fire, could more assault his heart. Confus'd and struck with silence at the deed, He flies, but trembling, fails to fly with speed. His steps the youth pursues ; the country lay...
