Էջ 205 - You are old, father William," the young man cried, "And pleasures with youth pass away. And yet you lament not the days that are gone; Now tell me the reason, I pray.
Էջ 169 - COLD was the night wind, drifting fast the snow fell, \V ide were the downs and shelterless and naked, When a poor wanderer struggled on her journey, Weary and way-sore. Drear were the downs, more dreary her reflections ; Cold was the night wind, colder was her bosom: She had no home, the world was all before her, She had no shelter. Fast o'er the heath a chariot rattled by her ; " Pity me !" feebly cried the poor night wanderer.

Sweet are these scenes to her ; and when the Night Pours in the north her silver streams of light, She woos Reflection in the silent gloom, And ponders on the world to come.
Էջ 164 - Man hath a weary pilgrimage, As through the world he wends; On every stage, from youth to age, Still discontent attends ; With heaviness he casts his eye Upon the road before, And still remembers with a sigh The days that are no more.
Էջ 172 - And all the rustic train are gather 'd round, Each deftly dizen'd in his Sunday's best, And pleased to hail the day of piety and rest. And when, dim shadowing o'er the face of day, The mantling mists of even-tide rise slow, As...
