Էջ 27 - Those living jellies which the flesh inflame, Fierce as a nettle, and from that its name ; Some in huge masses, some that you may bring In the small compass of a lady's ring ; Figured by hand divine— there's not a gem Wrought by man's art to be compared to them ; Soft, brilliant, tender, through the wave they glow, And make the moonbeam brighter where they flow.
Էջ 27 - Involved in sea-wrack, here you find a race, Which science doubting, knows not where to place ; On shell or stone is dropp'd the embryo-seed, And quickly vegetates a vital breed.
