Seite 108 - tis midnight deep. The weary clouds, Slow meeting, mingle into solid gloom. Now, while the drowsy world lies lost in sleep, Let me associate with the serious Night, And Contemplation, her sedate compeer ; Let me shake off the intrusive cares of day, And lay the meddling senses all aside.
Seite 7 - Cold, and averting from our neighbour's good; Then dark disgust and hatred, winding wiles, Coward deceit, and ruffian violence. At last, extinct each social feeling, fell And joyless inhumanity pervades And petrifies the heart.
Seite 84 - O ! let thy friend (and may he boast the name) Breathe from his artless reed one parting lay; A lay like this thy early Virtues claim, And this let voluntary Friendship pay. Yet know, the time arrives, the dangerous time, When all those Virtues, opening now so fair, Transplanted to the world's tempestuous clime, Must learn each Passion's boist'rous breath to bear.

For, if a cherub in the shape of woman Should walk this world, yet defamation would, Like a vile cur, bark at the angel's train To-day...
Seite 117 - She doth well. In the soft bosom of that gentle maid, There dwells more goodness, than the rigid race Of moral pedants, e'er believ'd, or taught. With what amazing constancy and truth, Doth she sustain the absence of our son, Whom more than life she loves ! How shun for him, Whom we shall ne'er see more, the rich and great ; Who own her charms...
Seite 133 - Now shield with shield, with helmet helmet closed, To armor armor, lance to lance opposed, Host against host with shadowy squadrons drew, The sounding darts in iron tempests flew, Victors and vanquish'd join'd promiscuous cries, And shrilling shouts and dying groans arise ; With streaming blood the slippery fields are dyed, And slaughter'd heroes swell the dreadful tide.
