Страница 206 - I've been wand'ring away — To see thus around me my youth's early friends, As smiling and kind as in that happy day ? Though haply o'er some of your brows, as o'er mine, The snow-fall of time may be stealing — what then ? Like Alps in the sunset, thus lighted by wine...
Страница 150 - tis a lie, I am not ague-proof. Glo. The trick of that voice I do well remember : Is't not the king ? Lear. Ay, every inch a king : When I do stare, see, how the subject quakes.
Страница 148 - Though riches, honours, and all the glories of this world, are with a man, yet he fears, yea, he fears the more for these, because here they must end. But the good man looks death out of countenance, in the words of David, Though I walk through the valley and shadow of death, yet will I fear no evil, for thou art with me.
Страница 151 - For her th' unfading rose of Eden blooms, And wings of seraphs shed divine perfumes ; For her the spouse prepares the bridal ring ; For her white virgins hymeneals sing ; To sounds of heavenly harps she dies away, And melts in visions of eternal day.
Страница 125 - The old nobility and land proprietors are gone out. Their place is supplied by railroad speculators, iron mine men, and grinders from Sheffield, &c., Liverpool and Manchester merchants and traders.
