Seite 63 - gainst that season comes Wherein our Saviour's birth is celebrated, The bird of dawning singeth all night long : And then, they say, no spirit dare stir abroad ; The nights are wholesome ; then no planets strike, No fairy takes, nor witch hath power to charm, So hallow'd and so gracious is the time.

Seite 101 - I'll show you a book where Moses, and his sister, And Solomon have written of the art; Ay, and a treatise penn'd by Adam SUR. How ! MAM. Of the philosopher's stone, and in High Dutch. SUR. Did Adam write, sir, in High Dutch? MAM. He did; Which proves it was the primitive tongue.
Seite 9 - The wakeful shepherd by his flock in field, With wonder at that time far off beheld The wanton shine of thy triumphant fiers, Playing upon the tops of thy tall spiers : Thy goodly buildings, that till then did hide Their rich array, opened their windowes wide, Where kings, great peeres, and many a noble dame...
