Seite 664 - I, that was wont to behold her riding like Alexander, hunting like Diana, walking like Venus, the gentle wind blowing her fair hair about her pure cheeks, like a nymph, sometimes sitting in the shade like a goddess, sometimes singing like an angel, sometimes playing like Orpheus ; behold the sorrow of this world! once amiss hath bereaved me of all.
Seite 688 - lion-like rising, she daunted the malapert orator no less with her stately port and majestical departure, than with the tartness of her princely checks; and, turning to her court, exclaimed,
