Seite 35 - Thy mother ; fonder of that tender name, " Than all the proud additions pow'r can give. " Yes, I will give up all my share of greatness, " And live in low obscurity for ever, " To see thee rais'd, thou darling of my heart,
Seite 53 - Torn from my side without a pang of sorrow ? How art thou thus unknowing in my heart ! Words- cannot tell thee what I feel. There is An agonizing softness busy here. That tugs the strings, that struggles to get loose ; And pour my soul in wailings out before thee.
Seite 53 - They must be steel'd with some uncommon fortitude, That, fearless, we may tread the paths of horror ; And, in despite of fortune and our foes, Ev'n in the hour of death, be more than conquerors.
Seite 30 - Therefore receive, oh prince! and take it kindly, For none on earth but you could win it from me, Receive the gift of my eternal love ; 'Tis all I can bestow; nor is it little, For sure a heart so coldly chaste as mine No charms but yours, my lord, could e'er have warm'd Eij far.
Seite 67 - No breath of wind now whispers thro' the trees. No noise at land, nor murmur in the seas ; Lean wolves forget to howl at night's pale noon, No wakeful dogs bark at the silent moon, Nor bay the ghosts that glide with horror by To view the caverns where their bodies lie ; The ravens perch, and no presages give, Nor to the windows of the dying cleave ; The owls forget to scream ; no midnight sound Calls drowsy Echo from the hollow ground ; In vaults the walking fires...
Seite 86 - Or strong his reason, where allowed to reason, He would, for Heaven's sake, martyr half mankind. MaH. The brother of Palmira ! Mir. Yes, that brother, The only son of thy outrageous foe, And the incestuous rival of thy love. Mah. I hate the stripling, loathe his very name; The...
Seite 45 - To make a merit of that proffer'd freedom, Which, in despite of thee, a day shall give me. Nor can my fate depend on thee, false Guilford ; For know, to thy confusion, ere the sun Twice gild the east, our royal Mary comes To end thy pageant reign, and set...
Seite 33 - Beset my anxious heart : and yet, as if The burthen were too little, I have added The weight of all thy cares ; and, like the miser, Increase of wealth has made me but more wretched. " The morning light seems not to rise as usual, " It draws not to me, like my virgin days, " But brings new thoughts and other fears upon me;" I tremble, and my anxious heart is pain'd, Lest aught but good shou'd happen to my Guilford.
Seite 29 - In spite of reason or restraint we come; Leave kindred, parents, and our native home. The trembling maid, with all her fears he charms, And pulls her from her weeping mother's arms : He laughs at all her leagues, and in proud scorn Commands the bands of...
Seite 11 - Of all the softness that should make a woman: Judgment almost like fear foreruns his actions, And he will poise an injury so long As if he had rather pardon than revenge it; But the young Persian prince, quite opposite, So fiery fierce that those who view him nearly May see his haughty soul still mounting in his face ; Yet did I study these so diff 'rent tempers 'Till I at last had form'da perfect union, «« As if two souls did but inform one body...
