Страница 65 - When thy last look, ere thought and feeling fled, A mingled gleam of hope and triumph shed ; What to thy soul its glad assurance gave, Its hope in death, its triumph o'er the grave ? The sweet Remembrance of unblemished youth, The still inspiring voice of Innocence and Truth...
Страница 142 - Our fair politician, well satisfied with the understanding of her confidante, which never comprehended more than met the ear, and secure in a charge d'affaires, whose powers it was never necessary to limit, stood on the steps before the house-door, deep in reverie, for some minutes after the carriage had driven away, till she was roused by seeing her son returning from his morning's ride.

Страница 142 - WILL you hear a Spanish lady, How she woo'd an English man ? Garments gay, as rich as may be, Deck'd with jewels had she on ; Of a comely countenance and grace was she ; And by birth and parentage of high degree.
