Pagina 3 - Come on therefore, let us enjoy the good things that are present: and let us speedily use the creatures like as in youth. Let us fill ourselves with costly wine and ointments : and let no flower of the spring pass by us : Let us crown ourselves with rose-buds, before they be withered.
Pagina 20 - O, how much more doth beauty beauteous seem By that sweet ornament which truth doth give ! The rose looks fair, but fairer we it deem For that sweet odour which doth in it live. The canker-blooms have full as deep a dye As the perfumed tincture of the roses, Hang on such thorns, and play as wantonly When summer's breath their masked buds discloses ; But, for their virtue only is their show, They live unwoo'd and unrespected fade, Die to themselves.
Pagina 20 - The canker-blooms have full as deep a dye, As the perfumed tincture of the roses ; Hang on such thorns, and play as wantonly When summer's breath their masked buds discloses ; But, for their virtue* only is their show, They live unwoo'd, and unrespected fade ; Die to themselves. Sweet roses do not so ; Of their sweet deaths are sweetest odours made : And so of you, beauteous and lovely youth, When that shall fade, my verse distils your truth.
Pagina 137 - Nature never did betray The heart that loved her ; 'tis her privilege, Through all the years of this our life, to lead From joy to joy : for she can so inform The mind that is within us, so impress With quietness and beauty, and so feed With lofty thoughts, that neither evil tongues, Rash judgments, nor the sneers of selfish men, Nor greetings where no kindness is, nor all The dreary intercourse of daily life, Shall e'er prevail against...
Pagina 20 - If I quench thee, thou flaming minister, I can again thy former light restore, Should I repent me ; but once put out thy light, Thou cunning'st pattern of excelling nature, I know not where is that Promethean heat That can thy light relume.
Pagina 19 - See, where she sits upon the grassy green, (O seemly sight !) Yclad in scarlet, like a maiden queen, And ermines white: Upon her head a cremosin coronet, With damask roses and daffadillies set: Bay leaves between, And primroses green, Embellish the sweet violet.
Pagina 32 - ... wheat ; then of barley, oats, beans, and turnips. Potatoes are only cultivated to a great extent in certain localities ; rye, beet-root, and rape-seed, not very generally. Lucern is only known in a few districts, whilst red clover is found universally. Now, the selection of inorganic manures for these plants may be fixed upon by an examination of the composition of their ashes. Thus wheat must be cultivated in a soil rich in silicate of potash. If this soil is formed from feldspar, mica, basalt,...
Pagina 22 - The thin-leaved arbute hazel-graffs receives ; And planes huge apples bear, that bore but leaves. Thus mastful beech the bristly chesnut bears, And the wild ash is white with blooming pears, And greedy swine from grafted elms are fed With falling acorns, that on oaks are bred.
Pagina 22 - Fraxinus Herculeaeque arbos umbrosa coronae Chaoniique Patris glandes; etiam ardua palma Nascitur et casus abies visura marinos. Inseritur vero et fetu nucis arbutus horrida, Et steriles platani malos gessere valentes; 70 Castaneae fagus, ornusque incanuit albo Flore piri, glandemque sues fregere sub ulmis.
Pagina 89 - ... buds, where crowded, or likely to cross each other, were removed. A month after the first looking over, fresh buds had broken, and thus was opened a prospect of more gaps being filled, the outlines of the heads being still improved, and their size extended. They were looked over again and again, and the same plan followed out. The growth was, in consequence, more vigorous than that of the previous year, and the flowers fine. On the fall of the leaf in autumn the succeeding course of action was...
