Страница 217 - LORD ! Thou hast given me a cell Wherein to dwell; A little house, whose humble roof Is weather-proof; Under the spars of which, I lie Both soft and dry. Where Thou, my chamber for to ward, Hast set a guard Of harmless thoughts, to watch and keep Me, while I sleep. Low is my Porch, as is my fate, Both void of State; And yet the threshold of my door Is worn by th' poor; Who thither come, and freely get Good words, or meat.

Страница 124 - Ah Ben! Say how or when Shall we, thy guests, Meet at those lyric feasts, Made at the Sun, The Dog, the Triple Tun ; Where we such clusters had, As made us nobly wild, not mad? And yet each verse of thine Out-did the meat, out-did the frolic wine.
Страница 214 - In the hour of my distress, When temptations me oppress, And when I my sins confess, Sweet Spirit comfort me! When I lie within my bed, Sick in heart and sick in head, And with doubts discomforted, Sweet Spirit comfort me!
Страница 43 - I'le drink to the Garlands a-round it : But first unto those Whose hands did compose The glory of flowers that crown'd it.
Страница 55 - I've none, A cock I have to sing how day draws on: I have A maid, my Prue, by good luck sent, To save That little, Fates me gave or lent. A hen I keep, which, creeking day by day, Tells when She goes her long white egg to lay: A goose I have, which, with a jealous ear, Lets loose Her tongue, to tell what danger's near.
