Take but degree away, untune that string, And hark what discord follows.
Seite 227 - Since once I sat upon a promontory, And heard a mermaid, on a dolphin's back, Uttering such dulcet and harmonious breath. That the rude sea grew civil at her song ; And certain stars shot madly from their spheres, To hear the sea-maid's music.
Seite 469 - I'd have you buy and sell so ; so, give alms ; Pray, so ; and for the ordering your affairs, To sing them too. When you do dance, I wish you A wave o' the sea, that you might ever do Nothing but that : move still, still so, And own no other function.
