Page 254 - Now the bright morning star, day's harbinger, Comes dancing from the east, and leads with her The flowery May, who from her green lap throws The yellow cowslip, and the pale primrose.

Page 329 - C'est l'adieu d'un ami, c'est le dernier sourire Des lèvres que la mort va fermer pour jamais. Ainsi, prêt à quitter l'horizon de la vie, Pleurant de mes longs jours l'espoir évanoui, Je me retourne encore, et d'un regard d'envie Je contemple ses biens dont je n'ai pas joui.
Page 321 - Scarce seen, but with fresh bitterness imbued; And slight withal may be the things which bring Back on the heart the weight which it would fling Aside for ever: it may be a sound — A tone of music — summer's eve — or spring — 205 A flower — the wind — the ocean — which shall wound, Striking the electric chain wherewith we are darkly bound...
Page 359 - CHANNOCK went one time with his ordinary guard of Soldiers, to see a young Widow act that tragical Catastrophe, but he was so smitten with the Widow's Beauty, that he sent his Guards to take her by Force from her Executioners, and conducted her to his own Lodgings. They lived lovingly many Years, and had several Children...
