Pagina 20 - The cloud doth gather, the greenwood roar, The damsel paces along the shore ; The billows they tumble with might, with might; And she flings out her voice to the darksome night ; Her bosom is swelling with sorrow ; The world it is empty, the heart will die, There's nothing to wish for beneath the sky : Thou Holy One, call thy child away ! I've lived and loved, and that was to-day — Make ready my grave-clothes to-morrow.* * I found it not in my power...
Pagina 6 - The city gates fly open of themselves, They need no longer the petard to tear them. The ramparts are all filled with men and women...
Pagina 18 - And if this be the science of the stars, I too, with glad and zealous industry, Will learn acquaintance with this cheerful faith. It is a gentle and affectionate thought, That in immeasurable heights above us, At our first birth, the wreath of love was woven, With sparkling stars for flowers.
Pagina 20 - Das Herz ist gestorben, die Welt ist leer, Und weiter gibt sie dem Wunsche nichts mehr. Du Heilige, rufe dein Kind zurück, Ich habe genossen das irdische Glück, Ich habe gelebt und geliebet.
Pagina 35 - Tis a foe invisible, The which I fear — a fearful enemy, Which in the human heart opposes me, By its coward fear alone made fearful to me.
Pagina 18 - mong fays and talismans, And spirits ; and delightedly believes Divinities, being himself divine. The intelligible forms of ancient poets, The fair humanities of old religion, The power, the beauty, and the majesty, That had their haunts in dale, or piny mountain, Or forest by slow stream, or pebbly spring. Or chasms and wat'ry depths ; all these have vanished They live no longer in the faith of reason...
Pagina 65 - Tis full thirty years since then A youth who scarce had seen his twentieth year Was Wallenstein, when he and I were friends : Yet even then he had a daring soul : His frame of mind was serious and severe Beyond his years : his dreams were of great objects. He...
Pagina 41 - With undivided heart. It can remain No longer thus. Like enemies, the roads Start from each other. Duties strive with duties. Thou must needs choose thy party in the war Which is now kindling 'twixt thy friend and him Who is thy Emperor. Max. War ! is that the name ? War is as frightful as heaven's pestilence. Yet it is good, is it heaven's will as that is. Is that a good war, which against the Emperor Thou wagest with the Emperor's own army ? O God of heaven ! what a change is this.
Pagina 35 - I but amused myself with thinking of it. The free-will tempted me, the power to do Or not to do it. — Was it criminal To make the fancy minister to hope, To fill the air with pretty toys of air...
Pagina 18 - They live no longer in the faith of reason ! But still the heart doth need a language, still Doth the old instinct bring back the old names, And to yon starry world they now are gone, Spirits or gods, that used to share this earth With man as with their friend ; * and to the lover Yonder they move, from yonder visible sky Shoot influence down : and even at this day 'Tis Jupiter who brings whate'er is great, And Venus who brings every thing that's fair ! Thek.
