Pagina 197 - Full many a glorious morning have I seen Flatter the mountain tops with sovereign eye, Kissing with golden face the meadows green, Gilding pale streams with heavenly alchemy; Anon permit the basest clouds to ride With ugly rack on his celestial face, And from the forlorn world his visage hide, Stealing unseen to west with this disgrace : Even so my sun one early morn did shine With...
Pagina 15 - There's a dance of leaves in that aspen bower, There's a titter of winds in that beechen tree, There's a smile on the fruit and a smile on the flower, And a laugh from the brook that runs to the sea. And look at the broad-faced sun, how he smiles On the dewy earth that smiles in his ray, On the leaping waters and gay young isles ; Ay, look, and he'll smile thy gloom away.
Pagina 225 - The food of hope Is meditated action ; robbed of this Her sole support, she languishes and dies. We perish also ; for we live by hope And by desire ; we see by the glad light And breathe the sweet air of futurity ; And so we live, or else we have no life.
Pagina 263 - Listening, a gentle shock of mild surprise Has carried far into his heart the voice Of mountain torrents; or the visible scene Would enter unawares into his mind With all its solemn imagery, its rocks, Its woods, and that uncertain heaven received Into the bosom of the steady lake.
Pagina 1 - Dispirited : when, all at once, behold !

Pagina 341 - Winter season does of our own. The only advantage of Italy then is, that your penance is shorter than it would be in England ; for I repeat, that during the time it lasts, Winter is more severely felt here, than at Sidmouth, where I would even recommend an Italian invalid to repair, from November till February ; — if he could possess himself of Fortunatus's cap, to remove the difficulties of the journey.
Pagina 227 - They unto whom we shall seem tedious are in no wise injured by us, because it is in their own hands to spare that labour which they are not willing to endure.
Pagina 339 - SOMNIA — if a man be tired of the slow lingering progress of consumption, let him repair to Naples ; and the denouement will be much more rapid. The Sirocco wind, which has been blowing for six days, continues with the same violence.
Pagina 210 - ... cheerfulness which attend the celebration of the Sabbath-day in rural places are profitably chastised by the sight of the graves of kindred and friends, gathered together in that general home towards which the thoughtful yet happy spectators themselves are journeying. Hence a parish church in the stillness of the country is a visible centre of a community of the living and the dead ; a point to which are habitually referred the nearest concerns of both.
Pagina 135 - Not melancholy — no, for it is green, And bright, and fertile, furnished in itself With the few needful things that life requires. In rugged arms how soft it seems to lie, How tenderly protected...
