Seite 149 - One sun by day, by night ten thousand shine ; And light us deep into the DEITY. How boundless in magnificence and might ! O what a confluence of ethereal fires, From urns unnumber'd, down the steep of heaven, Streams to a point, and centres in my sight ! Nor tarries there ; I feel it at my heart. My heart, at once, it humbles, and exalts; Lays it in dust, and calls it to the skies.

A starry crown thy raven brow adorns, An azure zone thy waist ; clouds, in heaven's loom Wrought through varieties of shape and shade, In ample folds of drapery divine, Thy flowing mantle form, and, heaven throughout, Voluminously pour thy pompous train : Thy gloomy grandeurs (Nature's most august, Inspiring aspect !) claim a grateful verse ; And, like a sable curtain starr'd with gold, Drawn o'er my labours past, shall close the scene.
Seite 143 - And spread a lustre o'er the shades of night. Feel I thy kind assent ? and shall the sun Be seen at midnight, rising in my song...
Seite 101 - The first sure symptom of a mind in health Is rest of heart, and pleasure felt at home.
Seite 89 - And leaves us perfect blockheads in our bliss. The clouds may drop down titles and estates; Wealth may seek us; but wisdom must be sought; Sought before all; but (how unlike all else We seek on earth !) 'tis never sought in vain.
